Skillet Chicken Parmesan

This makes a delicious main meal that you can pair with pasta or veggies.

  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs ( I used Italian flavored bread crumbs)
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano 
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt (I used garlic powder)
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup marinara 
  • 3/4 cup part-skim grated mozzarella cheese


  1. In a shallow bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, and garlic salt. In another shallow bowl, beat the egg until frothy.
  2. Wrap chicken breasts in plastic wrap (I used a large zip-lock bag) and place on cutting board. Gently flatten to an even 1/2" thickness with a mallet (I used a rolling pin since I don't have a mallet).
  3. Dredge each chicken breast through egg and then through bread crumb mixture. 
  4. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken 4-5 minutes on each side until cooked through.
  5. Spoon marinara onto each breast and add grated mozzarella on top. Cover and reduce heat for about 3 minutes until cheese is melted.
