Best Chicken Parmesan Recipe

Category: Poultry, Main Dish

 Ingredients List

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 extra-large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 1/4 cups seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan, plus extra for serving
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • Unsalted butter
  • Extra-virgin olive oil


Pound the chicken breasts with a meat mallet until they are 1/4-inch thick.

In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt, and pepper on a dinner plate. In another small bowl, beat the eggs with 1 tablespoon of water. In a third bowl, combine the bread crumbs, 1/2 cup grated Parmesan and the basil.

Working with one chicken breast at a time, coat the chicken breast on both sides with the flour mixture, then dip it into the egg mixture and then dredge both sides in the bread-crumb mixture, pressing lightly. Do this with each of the 4 chicken breasts.

Heat 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet and cook 2 or 3 chicken breasts on medium-low heat for 3-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through and juices run clear. Add more butter and oil and repeat this process with the rest of the chicken breasts.

Serve warm with grated Parmesan cheese on top and a side of salad greens.
