This is a great summer recipe. It’s easy and not much mess to clean up. My family loves it! The chicken stays very moist and leftovers are yummy! Serve over your favorite pasta. I serve over linguini with Alfredo sauce.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 2 eggs
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 (28 ounce) jar chunky marinara sauce (such as Barilla®)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 teaspoons crushed oregano

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of heavy plastic on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound with the smooth side of a meat mallet to 1/2-inch thickness.
  2. 2 Shake bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, paprika, and parsley flakes together in a large resealable plastic bag.
  3. 3 Beat eggs in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken breasts in beaten eggs; dredge in bread crumb mixture. Dip and dredge each chicken breast once more.
  4. 4 Spray a microwave-safe dish large enough to hold chicken breasts in a single layer with cooking spray. Arrange breaded chicken breasts in the dish. Spray tops of the chicken breasts with cooking spray.
  5. 5 Cook in the microwave at 50% power for 6 minutes. Pour marinara sauce over chicken breasts. Cover and cook at 100% power for 12 minutes. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese and oregano over sauce. Cover dish and let stand until mozzarella cheese melts, about 10 minutes.
