“This cordon bleu meets schnitzel meets chicken parmigiana dish is the recipe you’ve been waiting for your entire life, and it’s entirely possible you’ll find yourself uttering those other three little words to your plate once this comes out of the oven.”
That got us right there. Chicken always goes well with cheese, and we can’t wait to share this recipe with all of you.
For 3 filling portions, you’ll need the following:
3 medium to large chicken breasts
5 oz shredded mozzarella (or more)
2 eggs, beaten
13½ fl oz tomato sauce
oil for frying
3½ oz grated Parmesan
2 tbsp basil, chopped
Okay, let’s start!
First, you have to sprinkle salt in your area. It seasons the chicken breast as you cut the meat. Make sure that you cut it only half-way through, we don’t want our cheese to spill, right?
Now, go ahead and fill it with mozzarella cheese, then firmly press it. Do this to the other two chicken breasts, and set aside.
Prepare your flour, beaten egg, and bread crumbs. Now, get one of the cheese-filled breasts and dredge it on the flour first, then the beaten egg, and then lastly, on the bread crumbs.
Make sure that you remove the excess crumbs. Do this to all three chicken breasts.
Once your cooking oil is hot enough, start frying the breaded chicken breasts. Remove when they are golden brown on both sides. While you’re frying your chicken breasts, you can already start filling a casserole dish with about three-quarters of your favorite tomato sauce.
Placed the fried cheesy chicken breasts on top, and then spread more tomato sauce. Now, sprinkle Parmesan cheese all over the chicken breasts – go on, add more! Don’t be shy!
Lastly, add basil to the breaded chicken breasts and put the casserole dish in your oven. Bake it at 360°F for 20 minutes.
That’s it, serve hot and enjoy!
The meal is quite easy to make, plus you don’t have to use expensive ingredients. It’s a hearty meal that you will definitely enjoy with your loved ones.
