Chicken Parmesan

My inspiration: Chef Savvy

Ingredients

     4 boneless skinless chicken breast (partially frozen)
     Salt and pepper
     1/2 - 1 cup flour
     1 tsp salt
     2 eggs
     1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
     1 cup parmesan sprinkles
     Spaghetti sauce
     Mozzarella cheese shreds
     Fresh basil (optional)

Directions

Chicken Parmesan

Cut your partially frozen chicken in half horizontally. It's so much easier to cut if it's partially frozen.

Chicken Parmesan

Lay chicken on a jelly roll pan. Cover with plastic wrap.

Chicken Parmesan

Pound chicken to 1/2" thick and season with salt and pepper on one side. Set aside.

Chicken Parmesan

Add your flour and 1 tsp salt to a shallow bowl. Whisk together.
Add your panko bread crumbs and parmesan to a shallow bowl. Whisk together.
Add your eggs to a shallow bowl. Whisk.

Add about 1/2" oil to a large skillet. Turn on medium to medium low to heat while your finish the chicken.

Chicken Parmesan

Dredge a piece of chicken in the flour, then egg, then panko mix. Place on a cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining chicken.

Chicken Parmesan

Now your chicken is ready to fry. Add a small piece of chicken to the oil. It it browns too fast then turn the heat down. If it takes too long to brown then turn the heat up. Cook chicken for a few minutes per side until it's nicely browned and crispy.

Chicken Parmesan

When your oil temp has regulated, repeat with the remaining chicken.

Chicken Parmesan

Be sure not to crowd them.

Chicken Parmesan

Place the cooked chicken on a baking sheet.

Chicken Parmesan

Dollop with spaghetti sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Place in an preheated oven or under your broiler until the cheese is melted.
I don't have a broiler so I put mine into a 500 degree oven for a few minutes.

Chicken Parmesan

Plate and top with basil if desired. Serve with extra sauce if you want. It pairs well with pasta and salad.

Chicken Parmesan

So savory and crispy. Yum! Very satisfying.
