 Ingredients List

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup unseasoned panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus 4 teaspoons
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 large chicken breasts (about 8 ounces each), cut in half
  • 1/4 cup marinara sauce, either homemade or store bought
  • Fresh basil, for garnish


1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with aluminum and spray lightly with cooking spray.

2. Set out two shallow bowls or plates. In one bowl, crack your egg and whisk well. In the second bowl, combine the panko bread crumbs, 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes.

3. Dip one piece of chicken into the egg wash, then the panko bread crumb mixture, and toss well to coat. Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining three chicken-breast halves.

4. Spray the breaded chicken lightly with cooking spray, and bake for 25 or 30 minutes, until coating is golden and the chicken breasts are just cooked through.

5. Remove from the oven and spoon out a tablespoon of marinara sauce over the top of each piece, then sprinkle a teaspoon of parmesan on top of each piece.

6. Place back in the oven for an additional three to five minutes, until the sauce is hot and cheese is bubbling.
