Fool Proof And Easy Chicken Parmesan Recipe

Whenever I go to an Italian restaurant, I feel inclined to order Chicken Parmesan. I use that to decide if the place is good or not. I take a lot of things into account; is the chicken dry or moist? is the breading right or wrong? is the pasta cooked right? But most importantly the sauce is what makes it what it is.

When I make Chicken Parmesan at home I want it to be perfect so I go for a sauce that I make myself. A hearty traditional sauce with just a little Italian Sausage added to it. The secret is the fresh ingredients – diced onions, juicy tomatoes, and fresh snipped herbs and spices. There really is no comparison between fresh and dried. Fresh ingredients will win, hands down, every time!

I also use fresh cheese (mozzarella and parmesan) in place of the processed stuff – it’s so much better this way! I top the Panko breaded chicken with some mozzarella (after the chicken is mostly cooked) and bake it. Then I add the sauce and bake it just a little longer.
