Did I mention it was baked?!

This, my dear friends, is some serious and delicious comfort food. It is my husband’s favorite chicken recipe, and it is the only non-chicken-nugget chicken recipe that my older daughter will eat!

Also, Hi! Happy weekend!!

And! Do I look like a mother of a 4-year old?! Say No. Because I look and feel 22. And at 22, I was in college, being very 22-ish.

But, the truth is, I AM a mother of a super cool, uber smart, beautiful girl that turns 4 today! Happy Birthday, ANA!

Speaking of hunger. I could really dig into this Baked Chicken Parmesan right about now. It’s honestly better than any restaurant’s chicken parmesan, you’ll see.

Chicken Parmesan, corn flour, milk, chicken breasts

Let’s discuss HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE BAKED CHICKEN PARMESAN

  • First we are going to make the breading by combining a bit of all purpose flour with corn flour, plus dried basil, grated parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. In a separate dish, we will add some milk and use it to dip in the chicken.
  • To prepare the chicken breasts, please lightly pound each chicken breast to an even thickness of about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch.
  • Dip the chicken in milk, then coat it with the flour mixture, and finally transfer each chicken breast to a cooking/cooling rack set over a foil lined baking sheet.
  • Pop the chicken in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until cooked through. The thinner the chicken, the less time it will need to cook.
  • Remove from oven and add marinara sauce over each chicken breast; top with fresh rounds of mozzarella cheese, and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • Top with fresh basil and serve.

This chicken… Oh my gosh, the chicken… It is SO GOOD! The breading is not only crispy, but it is also packed with amazing flavor, and the addition of fresh mozzarella adds a wonderful creaminess to the overall crunchy texture of the chicken.

It is also a healthier version of Chicken Parmesan because it isn’t fried, and it’s perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. Since most times chicken parmesan is served with spaghetti, I advise to keep it light and serve with a big green salad to round out the meal.

Make this. Fo’ reals. It will become a part of your weekly menu.

  1. Hi, Happy Birthday to Ana. Hope she had a wonderful day.
    Just a question if I might. Your recipe calls for cooking spray. Would like to know just what do you recommefor this recipe. I have butter spray and olive oil spray, but before I make this wonderful looking recipe, can you be so kind
    as to advise about the spray. Thanks for all your wonderful recipe.A suggestion if I may, when you give us a
    wonderful recipe that calls for spray, maybe you could suggest the kind of spray that should be used. Thanks and
    God Bless.

  2. Just made this last night and had rave reviews from everyone, including my non-chicken-eating 3YO (seriously, she won’t even eat chicken nuggets which I thought were a must-have for every toddler!).

    Definitely making this again!!!

  3. Kate,
    Happy 4 years of mom hood, you don’t look a day over 3!
    I’m so glad you grew your own tomatoes–we just got back from a week’s vacation during which I was convinced that every green tomato would turn red since I wasn’t out there with my thrice daily inspections.
    Alas, only 1 tomato was ripe–however, on the plus side I didn’t miss my window to can them!
    This whole dish looks amazing, and I bet it was a great hit at the party.
    Thanks!

  4. Happy Belated Birthday to Ana once again! This is something we’d LOVE to eat and I’ll try this very soon! I don’t know any kids (yet) who don’t like (mc)nuggets… haha. You’re funny you are calling us “dude”! Your posts always make me smile and happy.

  5. Happy Birthday to your sweet daughter!!

    I remember my daughter at that age… simply precious. I was perfect to her then…now she talks back… urgh. 🙁

    I really did have to do a double-take with the fish.. I mean chicken. Well done… it looks beautiful. 🙂

  6. Hope Ana had a wonderful birthday!! Great little meal idea! Love the batter baked chicken. I’ve never done that before, but it looks so good. Nice tomato topping!
