Skillet Chicken Parmesan is a great comfort food dish that’s easy enough for a weeknight meal, but special enough to serve at a dinner party!


  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts, sliced into medium sized cutlets and sliced or pounded to 1/3- 1/2 inch thick
  • salt and pepper to season chicken
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 eggs
  • vegetable oil to fry
  • 1 (24 ounce) jar Marinara sauce
  • 1 1-1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pound pasta cooked according to package directions to serve


  1. Place your chicken breasts on a large cutting board, trimming any excess fat. Season the chicken liberally with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. In a shallow bowl mix together the bread crumbs, basil, parsley and garlic powder.
  3. In another shallow bowl whisk together the 2 eggs.
  4. Creating a working station dip each cutlet into the egg and then into the bread crumb mixture, coating evenly.
  5. Repeat this process with all the chicken.
  6. In a 10- inch skillet add enough oil to cover and fill the pan until it’s 1/4- inch deep. Heat the oil on medium until it’s hot enough to fry. (To test the heat of the oil place the back end of a wooden spoon in the oil. If bubbles form immediately the oil is ready. If not allow the oil to heat a few minutes more.)
  7. Line a large plate with paper towels and set aside.
  8. Place 3- 4 pieces of chicken in the hot oil. Allow the chicken to cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  9. Transfer the chicken to the paper towel lined plate to soak up excess oil.
  10. When all the chicken is cooked pour the frying oil into a glass container to dispose of. Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel.
  11. Pour the entire jar of Bertolli sauce in the skillet and nestle all the chicken into the sauce and sprinkle the chicken pieces with both cheeses.
  12. Preheat the oven to broil.
  13. Cover the skillet with a lid or foil and place back on the stove top and heat over medium-low heat for 7-10 minutes until the cheese is just about melted.
  14. Finally uncover the skillet and place under the broiler for 1- 2 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and lightly toasted.
  15. Serve immediately with pasta.
