How To Make Skillet Chicken Parmesan

Whether it’s rice or pasta, this saucy skillet chicken parmesan pairs with any sides. Breaded fried chicken is baked with marinara sauce and parmesan.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 40 minutes



  • 1tspsalt
  • 1tspblack pepper
  • 1cupall purpose flour
  • 1large egg
  • 1cupItalian breadcrumbs
  • ½cupparmesan cheese,grated
  • 2lbschicken cutlets
  • 1cupolive oil
  • ½cuponion,diced
  • 2clovesgarlic,sliced
  • 2cupsmarinara tomato sauce,homemade or store bought
  • 6ozmozzarella cheese,sliced
  • fresh basil,for garnish
  • red pepper flakes,for garnish
  • spaghetti,cooked, for serving, or rice


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Heat olive oil in a 12-inch oven-safe skillet over medium heat. 

  2. Prepare your breading stations by stirring the salt and pepper with the flour in one bowl, whisking the egg in a second bowl, and measuring breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese into a third bowl.

  3. Coat chicken cutlets with seasoned flour. Dust off any extra flour. Transfer chicken cutlets to egg mixture and coat. Then transfer to the breadcrumbs and coat. Place breaded chicken on a plate.

  4. Heat oil to 325 degrees F. Add breaded chicken cutlets and fry for 4 minutes per side. The chicken should be 90 percent cooked through at this point; it should not be 100 percent cooked through.

  5. Remove chicken from the skillet, and carefully pour the olive oil into a bowl to cool, leaving about a tablespoon in the skillet. Don’t rinse out the skillet.

  6. Add the onion and garlic to the skillet and cook over medium-low heat for 2 minutes, until onion is translucent. Add the marinara sauce and bring to a low simmer.

  7. Add the chicken back to the skillet in the sauce. Top each chicken piece with a slice of mozzarella cheese.

  8. Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the sauce is bubbling, the cheese is melted, and the chicken registers 165 degrees F in the thickest parts.

  9. Serve over pasta or rice. Garnish with red pepper flakes and fresh basil. Enjoy!
