Baked Chicken Parmesan


  • 2 chicken breasts, approximately 1 pound
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella, or 4 slices fresh Mozzarella

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.  Grease a sheet pan with 2 tablespoons olive oil and set side.

Step 2: Slice chicken breasts in half lengthwise to make 4 fillets total.  Pound to even thickness if desired.

Step 3: In a shallow bowl, combine the panko bread crumbs, Parmesan, garlic powder, oregano, salt & pepper.  In a small bowl, whisk the egg.

Step 4: Dip each chicken fillet into the egg mixture then into the bread crumb mixture, coating both sides well.  Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.

Step 5: Bake for 15 minutes then flip onto the other side and top each chicken with 3-4 tablespoons of marinara sauce and a generous handful of Mozzarella cheese (or 1 slice if using fresh).

Step 6: Return to the oven and bake an additional 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the chicken is cooked through.  Brown under broiler for 2-3 minutes for additional doneness if desired.
