Ingredients You'll Need
4 chicken breast halves skinless boneless

⅔ cup Panko bread crumbs
⅔ cup Italian Seasoning bread crumbs
⅓ cup Parmesan cheese grated
2 tablespoons parsley
4 tablespoons oil or as needed
24 ounces marinara sauce homemade or jarred
1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
¼ cup Parmesan cheese shredded
basil & parsley fresh, chopped

2.Place flour in shallow dish. Place the eggs in a second dish (and beat with a fork).
3.Combine Panko, Italian crumbs, grated parmesan, 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, salt and pepper to taste in a third shallow dish.
4.Pound chicken breasts to ½" thick (if they're very large you can cut them in half).
5.Dip chicken into flour and shake to remove any excess. Dip chicken in beaten eggs & then into bread crumb mixture (press to adhere).
6.Preheat oil in a large pan. Brown chicken on each side, about 4 minutes per side or until golden (it does not need to cook through as it will continue to cook in the oven).

8.Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden and bubbly and chicken reaches 165°F. Sprinkle with fresh herbs and serve over pasta.
