Ready In:
1hr 20mins




  • Mix flour, salt, and pepper together on a large plate.
  • Dredge flattened chicken breasts in flour mixture. Set aside.
  • Heat olive oil and butter together in a large skillet over medium heat. When butter is melted and oil/butter mixture is hot, fry chicken breasts until nice and golden brown on each side, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Remove chicken breasts from the skillet and keep warm.
  • Without cleaning skillet, add onions and garlic and gently stir for 2 minutes. Pour in wine and scrape the bottom of the pan, getting all the flavorful bits off the bottom.
  • Allow wine to cook down until reduced by half, about 2 minutes.
  • Pour in crushed tomatoes and stir to combine. Add sugar and more salt and pepper to taste.
  • Allow to cook for 30 minutes.
  • If you choose to have pasta, cook linguine, spaghetti, or whatever pasta you like until al dente.
  • Toward the end of cooking time, add chopped parsley and give sauce a final stir.
  • Carefully lay chicken breasts on top of the sauce and completely cover them in grated Parmesan.
  • Place lid on skillet and reduce heat to low. Allow to simmer until cheese is melted and chicken is thoroughly heated. Add more cheese to taste.
  • Place cooked noodles on a plate and cover with sauce. Place chicken breast on top and sprinkle with more parsley. Or just place the chicken on a plate and dig in!
  • Serve immediately & enjoy!

  1. Very good and fresh light tasting sauce. More sauce than usual with Chicken Parmagiana. Definitely need to make pasta with this recipe. Made for I Recommend tag.
  2. This is the first time I have made chicken parmigiana and this was great. I only used 2 cans of tomatoes and about 1/2 the onions, but otherwise followed the recipe. Next time I will use my immersion blender before putting the chicken back in and break up the tomatoes a little since DH is not a big fan of chunky sauce (but he ate it tonight!). Made for I Recommend Tag.
  3. Excellent recipe and easy to make. I think next time I will put the tomatoes in the blender for a smoother sauce. Thanks for sharing!
  4. Cut the recipe in half for just the 2 of us & had a wonderfully comforting chicken dinner! Thanks so much for sharing this great keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]
  5. Simple and delicious! We loved it!
