  • Summary

    This one is a classic — almost everyone we know has indulged in a plate of chicken parmesan, but not many have made it at home for themselves. We admit, it has a few steps to it, but they are so worth it. In this case, homemade is where it’s at. For this recipe, we use our own marinara sauce since it is a little brighter and more fresh. (This can be done days or weeks in advance). If you’re in a pinch, store-bought is great. If you plan to buy jarred marinara sauce, you will need to buy 2 jars. About 1/2 of one jar will not be used.

    Ingredients

    • 4 chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds)
    • 1 cup (130 grams) all purpose flour
    • 1 cup (210 grams) dried breadcrumbs
    • 2 ounces grated parmesan cheese, divided (about 3/4 cup)
    • 2 large eggs
    • 2 tablespoons milk
    • 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil, plus more as needed
    • 4 cups marinara sauce, warmed, see our homemade marinara recipe
    • 1/2 bunch fresh basil leaves
    • 4 slices provolone cheese
    • Salt and fresh ground black pepper
