Simple Chicken Parmesan

Course: dinner, Entree, Main, Supper


  • 4 chicken breasts boneless & skinless
  • 3-4 cups homemade tomato sauce or 2 jars of your favourite sauce
  • 1 cup grated cheese mozzarella, provolone or a blend & parmesan
  • 1 package shake & bake or any type of breading you like
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • Splash of Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Warm tomato sauce.
  • In a pie plate mix together shake & bake, oregano, parsley and good handful of parmesan cheese.
  • In another deep dish or pie plate mix together flour, salt, pepper and basil.
  • In a third dish or bowl mix beat your eggs.
  • Start by coasting chicken breasts in flour, then dipping in eggs and finally shake & bake mixture.
  • Heat a fry pan to med/high heat. Add oil and butter. Sear chicken about 3-5 minutes or until nicely browned on both sides.
  • Spoon a little of the warmed tomato sauce on bottom of greased casserole dish.
  • Place chicken breasts on top of tomato sauce in casserole dish, one beside the other so they form a single layer. Sprinkle a good handful of cheese (or cheese slice) on top of each breast. Spoon tomato sauce around the chicken.
  • Bake in oven about 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked and cheese melted.
  • Spoon any leftover sauce over your favourite pasta and serve it with your chicken.


I always make extra tomato sauce and whatever is leftover can be put into storage containers and frozen.
