Baked Chicken Parmesan

Baked Chicken Parmesan with Roasted Broccoli – a healthier version of chicken Parmesan all made on one baking sheet! Super easy, quick and definitely family friendly.

When I was a kid every time we went out for Italian food I would order Chicken Parmesan.  I requested it for my birthday every year, it was pretty much my favorite thing!  So much so that this Chicken Parmesan Pasta Skillet is still a favorite of mine.  All the flavors in an one pan dinner! 

You can even turn it into a sandwich with this Chicken Parmesan Panini.  I am all about taking my favorite flavors and getting to enjoy them in new ways.  And if they can be made a little bit healthier like this Baked Chicken Parmesan recipe then I am even happier.

What to serve with Chicken Parmesan

This recipe has broccoli included, but you could definitely follow the recipe and just not make that part if you don’t like it.  Traditionally it is served with pasta when you order it at a restaurant. 

How to make Baked Chicken Parmesan

  1. Set up a breading station. You will want 3 shallow bowls; 1 for flour, 1 for egg, and 1 for breadcrumbs. 
  2. Dredge the chicken in the flour and gently shake off the excess. Then pass the chicken through the egg and finally into the breadcrumbs
  3. After the chicken is nicely coated place on a baking sheet. And bake until nicely and crisp! Make sure to bake chicken Parmesan uncovered, so that it gets nice and crispy.
  4. Remove from the oven and top with some sauce and Mozzarella cheese. Put it back in the oven for a few minutes for the cheese to melt.

How Long to Bake Chicken Parmesan

This depends a little on the temperature you are baking at as well as how thick your chicken is.  I like to bake at 425º F, so you can get it crispy on the outside. If you get your chicken about 1/2 inch thick it will take about 30 minutes total to get the chicken fully cooked. You can also buy chicken cutlets that are slightly thinner and those would cook in 20-25 minutes. You want the chicken fully cooked, but not over done or it will be dry and tough. The best way to know when chicken is done is to take the temperature. It should be 165º F when it is completely cooked.

Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days. When you reheat it will not be as crispy as it was the first time, but it will still make for a great lunch later in the week.
