Chicken Parmesan taken to the next level, proving you can never have too much cheese!
Place flour in first shallow bowl
In second bowl, place eggs and beat well with fork
In third bowl, combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese
Combine salt, pepper and garlic powder and sprinkle evenly over chicken
Cut a “pocket” in each breasts, making sure not to cut all the way through
Stuff each breast with 2-3 Tbsp of Mozzarella cheese
Add enough oil to skillet to lightly coat the bottom
When oil is hot, take one chicken breast at a time and dredge in flour, coating lightly
Then in egg, allowing extra to drip back into the bowl
Then in bread crumb mixture
Place in hot oil and brown on both sides (about 3 minutes on each side)
Adjust heat as needed in order for oil not to get too hot
When chicken is golden brown and crispy, turn off heat and pour over Marinara
Top each piece with remaining cheese and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Remove from oven and top with chopped Parsley, if desired
Serve immediately while the the cheese inside is ooey-gooey deliciousness!
*It’s important to make sure oil is hot before place in chicken, otherwise coating will fall off…. sad day!
*Time will depend on thickness of chicken
