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.
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?
