Prep: 15 minutes; Cook: 7 minutes. We've streamlined this family favorite so you can get it on the table in less than 30 minutes.Skinless chicken is a much leaner and healthier option. Although skin tastes good, it has a lot of unhealthy, saturated fat. Dressing up regular chicken breast with this parm recipe provides flavor and nutrients like calcium and protein.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place chicken breasts flat sides down on a sheet of plastic wrap. Cover with another sheet of plastic wrap. Using a small saucepan or rolling pin, lightly pound breasts to about 1/3-inch thickness. Pat breasts dry with paper towel.

  • In a bowl, combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, and oregano. In another bowl, lightly beat egg and salt. Brush both sides of chicken breasts with egg, then lightly coat with crumb mixture.

  • Warm oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When oil shimmers, add chicken and cook about 3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Sprinkle mozzarella evenly on top of chicken breasts in last minute of cooking. Transfer breasts to serving plates.

  • Meanwhile, warm marinara sauce in microwave or small saucepan for 1-2 minutes. Spoon about 2 tablespoons sauce over each breast. Serve immediately.
