Skillet Parmesan Chicken

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

This is real comfort food. A family favorite. If you can, buy the fresh mozzarella. You won't believe the difference and it's worth it. The texture isn't rubbery like the typical mozzarella. I got it from watching an Emeril show on the Food Network.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound the chicken breasts between two slices of plastic wrap until about 1/4" thick.
  2. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess.
  4. Dip in egg/milk mixture, then in breadcrumb/Parmesan mixture.
  5. Heat the butter and olive oil in a large deep skillet.
  6. Brown the chicken breasts over medium heat until golden on each side (about 2-3 min per side).
  7. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
  8. Add the marinara sauce to the skillet.
  9. Heat to boiling and simmer 10 minutes.
  10. Add the chicken breasts to the sauce and sprinkle Parmesan over them.
  11. Place a slice of mozzarella on each piece of chicken.
  12. Cover and simmer about 8- 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the chicken is tender.
  13. Serve with your favorite pasta- we like linguine.

This was a very easy and such a yummy dinner for us. I did find some fresh mozzarella and it melted very creamy. I served this with salad, bread and a bottle of Merlot. Thanks to PanNan.
