Easy Chicken Parmesan

I’m not Italian so don’t yell at me about being authentic. This is an easy version of a fantastic classic that I’ve made up by taste, not by national pride. Just because I’m not Italian doesn’t mean I can’t make a pretty damn wicked version of Chicken Parmesan.


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup bread crumbs (homemade are the best- just food pro stale bread ends until they reach the desired texture. No oil needed.)
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • about 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • about a cup of pre or home made┬átomato pasta sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup of flour


Pound out 2 chicken breasts until relatively flat but not so thin that it’s tearing.

Season chicken with salt and pepper.

Heat oil in large pan and set up breading station (plate of flour, dish of beaten egg, plate of bread crumbs).

Season bread crumbs with garlic powder, oregano and half of chopped parsley.
