Gather Ingredients

You will need: chicken, breadcrumbs, parmesan, eggs, salt, pepper, butter, and tomato basil pasta sauce.


Prepare the Chicken

Use thin sliced chicken breast or prepare the chicken breasts by flattening with a poultry mallet. Then, sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper on each side.


Marinate in Egg Wash

Beat the eggs with a whisk, food processor, or blender and pour the egg mixture into a ziplock bag. Add the chicken and allow it to marinate for 30-60 minutes.


Cast Iron Skillet

Heat a cast iron griddle or oven-save frying pan on the stove over medium heat.


Coat the Chicken

In a shallow dish, combine the parmesan cheese and Italian bread crumbs. Remove the chicken from the ziplock bag and coat each side with the bread crumb mixture.


Pan-Fry the Chicken

Cook the chicken for 4-5 minutes until it begins to brown, on each side until the chicken is no longer pink and a thermometer inserted reads at least 165 degrees.


Add Toppings

While the chicken is cooking, warm up the tomato basil sauce. Once the chicken has cooked through, top the chicken breasts with 2-3 tablespoons of sauce. Then top with mozzarella cheese.


Melt the Cheese

Turn on your ovens broiler, and place the pan of chicken under the broiler until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown on top. Top with fresh basil.
