Servings 4 People


  • 4 Chicken breasts 4 oz each
  • 1 Cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 4 tbsp Butter melted
  • 4 oz fresh mozzarella cheese sliced
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese shredded


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  • Melt 4 Tbsp of butter in a medium to large pan
  •  Place chicken breasts into Ziplock bags, (I usually do 2-3 breasts per bag depending on the size) and tenderize until thin and even
  • Dip each chicken breast first into the melted butter and then into the breadcrumbs, coating them lightly  
  • Sprinkle shredded parmesan onto each breaded chicken breast
  • Place the breaded chicken breasts onto the pan and cook for approximately 18 mins  
  • Remove the chicken breasts from oven and add a spoonful or two of marinara sauce as well as one slice of mozzarella cheese to each
  • Set oven to broil and place chicken breasts back into the oven for a minute or two. Keep an eye on them and remove when cheese is melted.
  • Remove from oven, plate with your favorite vegetable or salad and enjoy!
