  • 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 whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • Vegetable 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 the eggs and set aside. In another large bowl, mix together the whole-wheat flour and Parmigiano-Reggiano.

  3. Dip the chicken in egg and then dredge to coat with the flour-cheese mixture. Shake off the excess and set coated chicken pieces aside. Repeat for the remaining chicken.

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

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