  • (2) 8 ounce chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup grated Reggiano Parmigiano
  • 12 ounces crushed tomatoes (San Marzano)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 small carrot
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Cooking Directions

  1. To make sauce, chop garlic, basil, and onion finely (if you have sauce, skip this part and go directly to adding sauce to the baking pan)
  2. Add olive oil to pot with garlic, onion, pinch of basil, pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 10-15 minutes at low heat
  3. Add crushed tomatoes, bay leaves, and carrot (I usually cook my sauce for 3-4 hours but 45 minutes is acceptable in this case as the sauce will cook another 45 minutes in the chicken parmesean)
  4. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees
  5. Clean chicken cutlets and then slightly flatten to thin out, then cover in breadcrumbs on both sides
  6. Add sauce to oven pan and smooth around base, then add chicken cutlets on top
  7. Add a light layer of sauce over chicken cutlets and then slice fresh mozzarella over sauce.
  8. Add another thicker layer of sauce over fresh mozzarella and then spread Reggiano Parmigiano over cutlets
  9. Cover pan with aluminum foil and place in oven for 45 minutes.
  10. Take out of oven and let sit for 5 minutes then serve
