How to Make Chicken Parmesan

Bobby Flay shares his recipe for Chicken Parmigiana. He begins by placing a skinless boneless chicken breast in plastic wrap and hitting it with a tenderizer to flatten it to about a half inch. He seasons the chicken with salt and pepper. Bobby explains that his “assembly line” station has a bowl each of all-purpose flour, beaten egg and panko breadcrumbs, all of which he’s seasoned with salt and pepper. He first coats the chicken in the flour, then the egg and finally the breadcrumbs. He adds oil to a pan and places the chicken in to saute until it’s brown and crisp on both sides. Once the chicken is browned, it’s placed on a sheet pan. Bobby covers it with tomato sauce, slices of fresh mozzarella, salt and pepper, and Parmesan cheese. He bakes it in the oven until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted.


Tomato Sauce:

4 cloves garlic, smashed with some kosher salt to make a paste. Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until soft. Add pureed tomatoes with their juices, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, 1 cup water, bay leaf, parsley, Cubano pepper, and bring to a boil. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Reduce heat and cook until slightly thickened, about 30 minutes.

Can Chicken Parm Be Made Ahead?

You can saute the breaded chicken, arrange in a casserole dish and top with marinara and cheese, then cover and refrigerate. Bake before serving, but be sure to bake a few minutes longer since you are baking chilled chicken. Check the internal temperature of the chicken with an instant-read thermometer to ensure that it bakes to a safe 165ËšF. (Source: natashaskitchen.com)

Chicken Parmesan Recip

A classic Italian-American Parmesan — a casserole of fried, breaded meat or eggplant covered with tomato sauce and molten cheese — is all about balance. You need a bracing a tomato sauce to cut out the fried richness, while a milky, mild mozzarella rounds out the Parmesan’s tang. Baked until brown-edged and bubbling, it’s classic comfort food — hearty, gooey and satisfying. Although chicken or veal cutlets are the standard, boneless, skinless chicken thighs make a more flavorful alternative. Pork or turkey cutlets work nicely here, too. (Source: cooking.nytimes.com)
