How to Make Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan

You’ll start by lining a baking sheet with foil and spraying it with non-stick cooking spray. Then, whisk your eggs together in a shallow bowl.

After that, mix your panko bread crumbs, grated parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a shallow bowl.

Next, pat your chicken dry with a paper towel, dip it in your egg mixture, your bread crumb mixture, press the bread crumbs into both sides, and place each piece of coated chicken onto your baking sheet.

Next, bake you chicken at 400° F for 15 minutes and begin cooking your spaghetti pasta if you haven’t already. Once it’s done, drain it and set it aside.

Then, flip your chicken, cover it with a spoonful of marinara sauce, and top it with mozzarella cheese.

Finally, bake for another 10 minutes at 400° F until everything is melted and bubbly hot and the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165° F. You can also broil for 2-3 minutes to brown the cheese.

Now, serve immediately with your cooked pasta and additional marinara sauce or a salad. Enjoy!
