  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half
  • Kosher or sea salt, to taste
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • Olive oil, for frying
  • 2 cups tomato sauce, heated
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • Chopped Italian parsley, for garnish

How to make this recipe

  1. Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Cut or pound the chicken breasts into 1/2-inch-thick pieces. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

  2. In large bowl, beat eggs and set aside. In another large bowl mix together the flour and Parmigiano-Reggiano.

  3. Coat the chicken in egg and then dredge it in the flour/cheese mixture. Shake off any excess and set coated chicken pieces aside. Repeat with the remaining chicken.

  4. Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. After the oil is hot, add the chicken. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, turning once, until the chicken is golden and cooked through.

  5. To serve, top the cooked chicken with hot tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and garnish with parsley.

Serve With

Fresh pasta.
