Chicken Parmesan with Spaghetti on Dinner Plate

Chicken Parmesan with Spaghetti is easy and tasty!

Since we’ve been spending more time eating at home, I have set out on a mission to re-create our restaurant favorites. Chicken Parmesan with Spaghetti is one our entire family loves and we rarely have leftovers!

One of my husband’s favorite cuisines is Italian, so I was a bit worried I wouldn’t meet his expectations of recreating the dishes. This one impressed him and has since become a regular request. It looks fancy and difficult, but is actually one of the easiest recipes to put on the dinner table.

Plate of Chicken Parmesan with Spaghetti, Marinara Sauce, fresh herbs and cheese

Ingredients:

3 cup tomato sauce, divided
1½ lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Sea salt and black pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 large eggs
1/3 cup water
1½ cups panko breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1¼ cups Parmesan cheese, fresh grated, divided
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
6 oz. fresh Mozzarella, sliced
1 16-oz. box spaghetti

Optional, to serve:

Fresh basil, chopped
Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

Tools You’ll Need:

9″ x 13″ Glass Baking Dish

Meat Mallet

Measuring Spoons

Liquid Measuring Cup

High-Side Skillet

Strainer

Cheese Grater

Instructions:

Place the top oven rack in the center position and pre-heat oven to 425ºF. Pour one cup of the tomato sauce into a 9”x13” baking dish and spread into an even layer across the bottom. Set aside.

Place chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or rolling pin until approximately ½” thick. Remove and discard top sheet of plastic wrap. Season with salt and black pepper, as desired, and set aside.

Pour the flour onto a shallow, rimmed plate and whisk the eggs and water together in a large, wide bowl. Set aside.

Add the breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, and one-quarter cup Parmesan cheese to another shallow, rimmed plate. Season with salt and black pepper, as desired, and gently stir to combine. Set aside.

Bread each chicken breast by first lightly dredging in the flour and then coating in the egg wash. Gently shake off any excess flour or egg mixture before moving to the next step.

Press each breast into the bread crumb mixture until thoroughly coated on both sides. Once coated, place each breast onto a large plate and set aside. Repeat until all breasts are breaded.

Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a large, high-sided skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add half the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook until lightly browned on each side, approximately 4-5 minutes per side. Once browned, transfer the breasts to the baking dish and arrange in a single layer. Repeat this process with remaining olive oil and chicken.

Top the browned chicken breasts with the sliced Mozzarella and spread the remaining tomato sauce across the top in an even layer.

Sprinkle the remaining grated Parmesan cheese on top and place the baking dish into the pre-heated oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.

While the chicken is baking, prepare the spaghetti according to package directions. Drain, rinse, and set aside until ready to serve.  

Remove baking dish from oven and cool for several minutes. Divide the spaghetti among individual serving plates and top each serving with a cheesy chicken breast and some sauce. To serve, sprinkle some fresh basil and/or Parmesan cheese on top, if desired. Enjoy!
