Fletcher’s Favorite Chicken Parmesan

November 11, 2016


  • Olive oil
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 oz dry bread crumbs (I like Panko crumbs for extra crunch)
  • 1 tsp or to taste Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tsp Parmesan Cheese (divided)
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 (16 oz) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 3/4 cup Mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly add olive oil to cast iron skillet.
  2. Pour egg into a shallow bowl and beat slightly
  3. Mix bread crumbs, Italian seasoning and 1 tsp Parmesan cheese (tip: I mix it at at home and bring in a Ziplock for easy use). Dip chicken into egg then into bread crumbs. Place coated chicken in cast iron skillet and bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until no longer pink.
  4. Pour spaghetti sauce over chicken and cover with Mozzarella and 1/4 cup Parmesan on top and return to oven for about 15 minutes or until cheeses are melted.
  5. **Serving Suggestion: I usually cook pasta as a side to use the remaining sauce and serve with salad.
