How to Homemade Make Chicken Parmesan

My version of chicken Parmesan is a little different than what they do in the restaurants, with less sauce and a crispier crust.

How to Make Chicken Parmesan That's Never Soggy

Chicken Parmesan is no doubt the most popular non-pasta dish in Italian-American-style restaurants. And while this delicious meal may seem fancy, it's easy to make at home.

In fact, chicken Parmesan is one of those meals that's often best made in your own kitchen. The main problem I have with most versions of Chicken Parmesan served in restaurants is that they drown the chicken in so much sauce and cheese that it ends up being a big soggy clump of chicken and cheese. But it doesn't have to be that way, not with this method.

Unlike many restaurant preparations, this method doesn't overwhelm the chicken with sauce and cheese. The key to great non-soggy chicken Parmesan? Don't put any sauce under the chicken cutlets, just a little bit of sauce on top, so the breading stays relatively crisp. If you like a lot of sauce on your chicken Parmesan, that's fine, you can always serve extra sauce on the side. I also use some actual Parmesan cheese in this recipe! Curiously, most versions of chicken Parmesan only use mozzarella. Here, I'm going with a delicious mixture of fresh mozzarella, tangy Provolone and real Parmesan.

Another little trick I employ here is to add some grated Parmesan to the breadcrumbs, which adds another layer of flavor. You'll fry the breadcrumb and Parmesan crusted chicken breasts just to golden brown before transferring them to a baking pan and adding sauce (but not too much!), cheese, and herbs. Okay, now let's break it down.

Chef Anuj’s Top Tips for Making Chicken Parmesan

Before we get to the recipe, here's your cheat sheet for making the best-baked chicken Parmesan:

  • Pound chicken to an even thickness: Pound the boneless chicken breasts out to an even width so they cook evenly. Basically, you're pounding the thick part down to the size of the thin part, about a half-inch thick.
  • Don't skimp on seasoning: Salt and pepper the chicken well. Then don't bother with salting the flour and bread crumbs.
  • Add Parmesan to the bread crumbs: Use Panko bread crumbs mixed with a little finely grated Parmesan cheese. When you fry the breaded chicken, the Parmesan will give it an extra crunch and exciting flavor.
  • Rest before cooking: Before frying, let the breaded chicken sit on the counter for about 15 minutes to allow the coating to adhere to the chicken breast.
  • Go easy on the sauce: THE KEY: Don't drown the poor breaded and fried chicken in sauce and smother it in cheese. Too much of a good thing is too much. You did all the work creating a crisp coating, why make it soggy with too much sauce and cheese?
  • Make sure your oven is hot, hot, hot: Be sure your oven is completely preheated to 450 F. You'll want the cheese to brown slightly and the breading to crisp up before the chicken gets overcooked, and a nice hot oven is the way to go.


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs, or more as needed
  • ¾ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, or more if needed
  • ½ cup olive oil for frying, or as needed
  • ½ cup prepared tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup fresh mozzarella, cut into small cubes
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
  • ½ cup grated provolone cheese
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


Step 01:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

Step 02:

Place chicken breasts between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/2 inch.

Step 03:

Season chicken thoroughly with salt and pepper. Using a sifter or strainer; sprinkle flour over chicken breasts, evenly coating both sides.

Step 04:

Beat eggs in a shallow bowl and set aside.

Step 05:

Mix bread crumbs and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese in a separate bowl, set aside.

Step 06:

Dip a flour-coated chicken breast in beaten eggs. Transfer breast to the bread crumb mixture, pressing crumbs into both sides. Repeat for each breast. Let chicken rest for 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 07:

Heat 1/2 inch olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat until it begins to shimmer. Cook chicken in the hot oil until golden, about 2 minutes per side. The chicken will finish cooking in the oven.

Step 08:

Transfer chicken to a baking dish. Top each breast with 2 tablespoons tomato sauce. Layer each chicken breast with equal amounts of mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and provolone cheese. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan over top and drizzle each with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil.

Step 09:

Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is browned and bubbly and chicken breasts are no longer pink in the center, 15 to 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Anuj Chef's Notes

Use high-quality prepared tomato sauce for a better result. You may substitute pesto or dried Italian herbs of your choice for basil or omit them entirely.

How to Make Homemade Crispy Hash Browns

Good, old-fashioned, restaurant-style hash browns. Perfect with hot pepper sauce and ketchup!

If you're a firm believer that potatoes make basically any meal taste better, then you've come to the right place. Because we are too — especially when it comes to breakfast potatoes.

Choosing which type of breakfast potato to make can be a tough decision, but if you're craving crispy potatoes that remind you of your favorite restaurant, then you should try this hash brown recipe. The shredded potatoes are formed into pancake-like hash browns and lightly pan-fried for the perfect crispy texture that will pair deliciously with any breakfast dish.

How to Make Hash Browns

Believe it or not, making crispy hash browns is actually quite easy. First, shred your potatoes using your preferred method — either with a grater, food processor, or mandoline. Rinse the potatoes until the water is clear, then drain and squeeze out all the remaining liquid (this will ensure the hash browns are extra crispy).

Next, you'll add in your binding agents (flour and egg) as well as any other ingredients or seasonings. This recipe only calls for onion, but you could also add cheese, cayenne pepper, or garlic to the mixture.

Form your hash browns into patties (either one large hash brown or multiple smaller pancake-like hash browns) and pan fry them in oil, about five minutes on each side.

How to Make Hash Browns Crispy

To keep your hash browns crispy, make sure to heat the oil to sizzling before adding the patties and wait until the one side is golden brown before flipping.

You can also make your hash browns thinner because they will get crispier and cook more evenly.

What Type of Potato Works Best for Hash Browns?

If you care about the crisp, then you should use starchy potatoes, like russets or Idahoes. The only drawback is that the hash browns may be prone to falling apart because of the starchiness.

So, if you want your hash brown to stick together easily, then you should use a waxy potato, like new potatoes, Yukon Golds, or red potatoes. These potatoes have more moisture and will stick together in the pan, however, they won't crisp up as nicely as starchy potatoes.

How Do You Make Hash Browns Stay Together?

The biggest culprit that's making your hash browns come apart is moisture. You need to make sure the potatoes are dry before adding them to the flour and egg mixture. Whether you squeeze them out in a dish towel or use a salad spinner, get the potatoes as dry as they can be.

You can also use a different type of potato if you are worried about the hash browns breaking apart. If you use a waxy potato, they'll stick together nicely, but they won't get as crispy as you might want.

Another option is to add more ingredients that will act as binders. Try adding cheese to your hash browns because when the cheese melts it will be like a gooey glue that holds your potatoes together.


  • 2 medium russet potatoes, shredded
  • ½ medium onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup oil for frying, or as needed
  • salt and pepper to taste


Step 01:

Gather all ingredients.

Step 02 :

Rinse shredded potatoes until water is clear, then drain and squeeze dry.

Step 03 :

Place shreds in a bowl and mix in the onion, flour, and egg until evenly distributed.

Step 04:

Heat about 1/4 inch of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is sizzling hot, place potatoes into the pan in a 1/2 inch thick layer. Cover the whole bottom of the pan, or make separate piles like pancakes.

Step 05:

Cook until nicely browned on the bottom, then flip over and brown on the other side. It should take at least 5 minutes per side. If you are cooking them in one big piece, it can be cut into quarters for easier flipping.

Step 06 :

Remove from pan, and drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Step 07 :

Serve hot and enjoy!
