How to Make Homemade Chicken Parmigiana

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir in garlic and onion and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, roughly about two minutes.
  • Pour in diced tomatoes and sugar.
  • Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer.
  • Then reduce the heat to medium-low and continue simmering for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the sauce has simmered, stir in the cream and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Simmer for an additional three minutes.
  • Lower the heat and keep the sauce warm.
  • Stir together bread crumbs, two tablespoons parmesan cheese and dried oregano.
  • Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together egg and two tablespoons milk until blended.
  • Dip chicken breasts into the egg, then coat both sides with the breadcrumb mixture, shaking off the excess.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over a medium heat.
  • Add the coated chicken breasts and cook on both sides until they are cooked (Internal temperature of 70 degrees C) and the breadcrumb crust turns golden brown (about 10 minutes).
  • To serve, spoon sauce over chicken and top with mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
  • Let it stand for a few minutes until the cheese has melted from the heat of the sauce.
