Easy Chicken Parmesean

I had a request recently to make something a bit more "kid-friendly" and simple since so many of the recipes I post on here are spicy or have a multitude of ingredients that aren't in your average family kitchen. So here is a healthier, simpler, kid-friendly version of chicken parmesean. It's not fried, does not require that much time or that many ingredients, so it'd be perfect for a quick family meal on a busy weeknight. That's how it worked for me and my family of 1. During a crazy work week last week, this was a perfect fit.

Easy Chicken Parmesean (serves 4)


  • 1 lb chicken cutlets
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 TB garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesean cheese
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a glass baking dish with cooking spray.

Combine bread crumbs, garlic powder, basil and parmesean cheese in a bowl. Mix.

Dip the chicken in the egg and then into the bread crumb mixture.

Place chicken on baking dish and bake for 15 minutes. Flip cutlets over and bake for another 10 minutes. Then spoon tomato sauce on top of each piece, spreading evenly. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese on top. Return to the oven to bake for another 5 minutes until the cheese is melted. Serve with pasta and salad (if you can convince your kids to eat their greens!)
