As one of the Google's top searched recipes in 2017, a classic chicken parmesan is holding on strong as one of the ultimate comfort foods. This copycat version from the chefs at Olive Garden lets you recreate the restaurant favorite right at home. 


    • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 8 - 9 ounces each)
    • 2 cups flour
    • 1/2 quart milk
    • 4 eggs
    • 3 cups Italian-style breadcrumbs
    • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
    • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    • Parsley, to garnish
    • Cooked spaghetti or pasta, for serving


1. Place flour in a bowl and set aside.

2. Mix milk and eggs in a second bowl, breaking egg yolks, and set aside. Measure breadcrumbs in a third bowl and set aside.

3. Pound the chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap until about 1/4–inch  thickness. Season chicken with salt and pepper.

4 Coat the chicken lightly in flour, covering all sides completely. Dip into egg and milk mixture, covering completely.

5. Coat with breadcrumbs, covering evenly, removing any lumps.

6. Place breaded chicken in a single layer on a lined sheet tray.

7. Preheat oven to broil.

8. Heat oil in a cast iron pan to approximately 155 degrees.

9. Fry chicken for about 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through and golden brown.

10. Place chicken on paper towel to remove excess oil.

11. Top fried chicken with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. Broil in the over to melt the cheese.

12. Garnish with fresh parsley, chopped. Serve with spaghetti or your favorite side dish!
