This easy peasy recipe has become one of our family favourites. It is quick & simple to make and delicious. In addition, the nice thing about this recipe is it is very interchangeable.

I don’t have a recipe that I follow so it varies each time. At present I typically use 3 chicken breasts, so adjust your quantities accordingly to the amount you will need. I further make my own tomato sauce, but you can use your favourite jarred sauce as well. And instead of shake & bake you can use crushed corn flakes, bread crumbs, etc.

Simple Chicken Parmesan


3 – chicken breasts (boneless & skinless)
1 – approx. 700 ml homemade tomato sauce or 2 jars of your favourite sauce
1 – cup grated cheese (we stick with mozza, provolone or a blend & parmesan)
1 – package shake & bake (or any type of breading)
1 – egg, beaten
Splash of Olive Oil
Dried Oregano
Parmesan Cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Warm tomato sauce. Spoon a little tomato sauce on bottom of greased (pam) casserole dish.

Mix together shake & bake, a sprinkle of oregano and good handful of parmesan cheese. Dip chicken breasts in egg then in shake & bake mix. Sear chicken in hot oil in frying pan for about 3-5 minutes or until nicely browned on both sides.

Place chicken breasts on top of tomato sauce in casserole dish, one beside the other so they form a single layer. Spoon a little tomato sauce on top of each breast. Sprinkle a good handful of cheese on top of each breast. Pour the rest of the tomato sauce around the chicken.

Bake in oven about 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked and cheese melted. Spoon the extra sauce over your favourite pasta.
