Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 8 chicken breast cutlets (4 oz. each), pounded to ¼"–⅛" thickness
  • 1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. kosher salt
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 4 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 cups jarred marinara sauce
  • 8 slices mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • Season the chicken with Italian seasoning, pepper, and salt. In a shallow dish, mix together the Parmesan cheese and flour. In a second separate dish, place the beaten eggs. In a third dish, place the bread crumbs.
  • Working with 1 piece of chicken at a time, dredge the cutlet into the flour mixture, then the beaten eggs, and finally the bread crumbs. Use fingers to gently adhere the bread crumbs to the cutlet and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining cutlets.
  • Heat wok over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Once the oil is hot, cook 2 cutlets at a time for 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Transfer the cooked chicken to a plate and tent with aluminum foil. Repeat with the remaining cutlets.
  • Preheat the oven broiler. Place the cutlets in a baking dish. Cover the tops with the marinara sauce and place 1 piece of cheese on top of each cutlet. Broil until the cheese has bubbled and browned. Serve immediately.
