Chicken Parmesan Recipe



***Recipe is for two only 



  • 1 pound chicken breast- halved and flattened
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • pepper jack cheese slices (two for each piece of chicken)
  • 1/3 of a box of spaghetti


  • 1/2 a garden tomato cubed
  • olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 a yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 2 small cans of tomato sauce (I used one basil, garlic & oregano, the other a spicy kind)


  1. Make spaghetti according to instructions.
  2. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet and saute onion and garlic. Add tomatoes when the onions are translucent.
  3. Add both cans of tomato sauce and Italian seasoning. Bring to a boil and simmer until sauce thickens (15-20 mins).
  4. Mix egg and garlic powder on a plate. Dredge chicken in the mixture.
  5. Heat oil on another skillet and preheat oven to 375. On a separate plate, combine Parmesan, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  6. Press chicken onto dry mixture and cover completely. Fry chicken in skillet for 5 mins on each side/ until cooked.
  7. Grease a baking pan and line it with the cooked chicken. Top each with 2 slices of pepper jack cheese. 
  8. Place baking pan in oven and bake until cheese is melted (2-4 mins).
  9. Plate your dish: spaghetti first, sauce, then chicken. Enjoy!
