Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan
- 1 1/2 lbs thinly pounded chicken breasts
- 1 box woven wheat crackers or Triscuits (panko breadcrumbs also work)
- Fresh basil or italian parsley
- 1/4 cup parmesan
- 1 cup tomato sauce
- Mozzarella cheese
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Olive oil
Take your woven wheat crackers, parmesan, fresh herbs, salt & pepper, and blend it in a food processor until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. If you are using panko you can skip this step. Pour your bread crumb mixture into a rectangular baking dish. Take your thinly pounded chicken and place it in a bowl. Drizzle it with olive oil until it’s fully coated. Line a baking sheet with brown parchment paper. Take your chicken and dust it with your breadcrumbs until it’s fully covered. Then place it on the baking sheet with parchment. Once all your chicken is breaded place it in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Once it’s looking golden brown flip each piece of chicken. When it’s completely cooked, add a little bit of tomato sauce to each piece and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Let it cook for a little longer until the cheese is melted and bubbled.
Vegetarian option substitute cauliflower steak for the chicken. I usually make both since one of my daughters is a vegetarian.
