Chicken Parmesan Recipe

This Chicken Parmesan Recipe (also known as Chicken Parmigiana) is a chicken dish composed of chicken breast, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, and marinara sauce. Boneless skinless chicken breasts are flattened by light pounding or pressing. The chicken slices are dredged in flour and breadcrumbs and pan fried in extra virgin olive oil until half done.

Chicken Parmesan

Pan frying the chicken for this Chicken Parmesan Recipe  does not complete the whole process; you still need to make the marinara sauce, arrange the chicken with the rest of the ingredients, and bake. It would be better if you make your own marinara sauce so that you can control the taste.

This Chicken Parmesan Recipe is not complicated at all. It just happened that the steps listed here are a little over than the usual recipes that we publish. This might take some time to prepare but the result will definitely amaze you. You’ll never regret a thing.

As a side note, some people ask me why I cook and publish non-Filipino recipes here in my blog. Just so everyone is aware, Panlasang Pinoy is translated as the Filipino Palate. This blog is not only limited to authentic Filipino foods; other foods can also fit-in as long as the Filipino taste buds like them. Besides tirelessly featuring authentic Filipino dishes, don’t you think that it’s worth our time and effort to also feature other recipes which have been modified to fit our taste?

      I am a Filipina married to a Frenchman. I really appreciate this recipe because I know that my husband will definitely like this Italian dish (with Pinoy touch of course) tonight. Please keep on posting dishes like this because I believe that Panlasang Pinoy is absolutely not limited to authentic Filipino foods. Your website is now one of my favorites. Keep it up kabayan! 😀

      Hi Panlasangpinoy,
      I always use to eat this when I was younger we used toget them from frozen dinners or tv dinners, back in the States. But if you eat to much of those things it’s like eating fastfood not good. Anyways if you don’t have oven can you use microwave, please respond. Thank you.

    5. I used to have dishes like this as frozen dinners or as they might call them tv dinners. I was wondering as you may know most of the homes in the Philippines don’t have ovens, is there an alternative can you use microwave and please tell us what to set the microwave. Thanks a lot.

      Hi PP, this is my first time here and I think its great that you share all these exciting recipes. Google led me here when I search for a recipe of the marinara sauce of don henrico’s. Im looking for that distinct taste thats in there which I also tasted in tomato based sauces of then Angelino’s. I think its an herb or spice thats gives a nice game flavor that really compliments tomatoes. Could you help me on this chef? Thanks.

    8. Hey, what can i use other that chicken breast? Thanks!

    9. your recipes in here is very simple and nutritious, easy to prepare and i appreciate it very much!..hopefully you continue uploading any type of recipe..thanks!

    10. hi!!…this is one of my faves at don henrico’s…thanks for sharing this recipe!!…would love to try this one soon!!…i already tried the orange chicken today and it was a hit with my family!!…will do the beef salpicao tomorrow and im sure it’s gonna be a gastonomical blast as well!!…

      as for your question, i would love to learn new dishes regardless of its origin…we ought to be flexible and have an open mind about new dishes…come to think of it most of the filipino dishes have chinese and spanish influence/origin…if we’re gonna be dogmatic and refuse to learn new things, filipino dishes wouldn’t have evolved all these years…

      i really appreciate your effort in putting up this website…i only chanced upon this last week and i had been your daily “lurker” since then…i hope you won’t get tired of sharing with us your talent…

      more power to you!!…God bless you and your family!!… =)
