Chicken Parmaggiano is an American touch to your good old chicken. This is just another
delicious way to relish your favourite chicken. The tangy tomato sauce and the lusciousness
of cheese make this dish a comforting meal at any time of the day. Cooking it is as enjoyable
as eating it and doesn’t take much of your time.
Pound chicken until 1/3-inch thick. Season with salt and pepper.
Dip chicken in the beaten eggs, then roll in breadcrumbs.
Heat oil in a large oven-safe skillet. When oil is hot, brown chicken on all sides. Remove and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Discard excess oil from pan, leaving about 1 tablespoon of oil in the skillet. Sauté chopped onion and garlic until onions are slightly translucent. Stir in tomato sauce, drop in a sprig of basil, and bring to simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the basil.
Place chicken in the sauce. Sprinkle Parmesan over the chicken and place a round of mozzarella on top of each chicken breast. Transfer to oven and bake at 350°F for 15 minutes, or until cheese has melted and browned.
