There’s a reason Chicken Parmesan is an Italian favorite: it’s savory, flavorful and super cheesy. This recipe encapsulates all of this with its Parmesan breading, blend of spices and unforgettable tomato-based sauce.

ingredients

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 shallots, peeled and chopped
1 (28 ounce) can Tuttorosso® Crushed Tomatoes with basil
2 teaspoons dried oregano
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup flour
2 eggs, beaten
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

instructions

  • In large saucepan heat 4 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add garlic and shallots; sauté until tender. Add crushed tomatoes, parsley, oregano and crushed red pepper. Simmer until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Mix in basil and season with salt and black pepper.
  • Blend breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese in small bowl. Place flour and eggs in separate shallow bowls. Coat the chicken with flour, then eggs, then breadcrumb mixture, patting to adhere.
  • Heat remaining 3 tablespoons of oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sauté until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Spoon ¼ cup of sauce over each chicken breast. Sprinkle with cheese. Preheat broiler for 5 minutes. Place skillet under broiler to melt cheese. Re-warm remaining sauce and serve with chicken. Garnish with fresh basil leaves.
