Chicken Parmesan Recipe

Chicken Parmigiana Recipe

If you can find a good Chicken Parmesan Recipe then you've struck gold. It is a real classic favourite and even fussy kids like this chicken recipe. It's a tasty way to cook chicken strips especially for a larger crowd.

It's the Parmesan cheese and garlic combination that make this recipe so delicious. Parmigiano-Reggiano as it's known in Italy is the best Parmesan cheese.This hard-textured cheese is made from skimmed or partially skimmed cow`s milk.

It has good sharp flavour and used mainly in it's grated form - freshly grated is best. It seems that Parmesan goes well with chicken recipes. You might want to look at my personal favourite Chicken Alfredo Recipe for more Chicken Parmesan Recipe ideas.

When it comes to Parmesan Chicken, I prefer the oven fried Parmesan Chicken Recipe, it always gets rave reviews and is easy to make.

The melted butter can be substituted with beaten egg. Some health consious, creative cooks have tried using yogurt for the wet coating but said it didn't turn out as well as the butter.

If you cannot eat bread then you can substitute the bread crumbs for crushed tortilla chip and cornflakes.

If you have the time there is a delicious crushed garlic and olive oil marinade that will really enhance the flavour of the chicken before you coat it with the crumbs.

The second Chicken Parmesan Recipe is actually called crispy yogurt chicken but it is really similar to chicken parmigiano (parmesan). As I mentioned, some cooks have found that the crumbs didn't stick as well with the yogurt.

Optional Garlic and Olive Oil Marinade

  • 2 tsp. crushed garlic
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

How To Make Chicken Marinade

  1. Combine the crushed garlic and olive oil in a pan and heat until it's just warm. Place the chicken strips and the warm garlic oil in a zip lock bag and place in the refrigerator to marinade all day or as long as you have.
