How to Make Chicken Parmesan

In this video, you’ll learn how to make chicken parmesan. Unlike many restaurant preparations, Chef John’s method doesn’t overwhelm the chicken with sauce and cheese. You’ll see how to prepare the boneless chicken breasts and learn Chef John’s trick of seasoning the chicken directly (instead of the bread crumbs). You’ll get breading and saucing tips to ensure your chicken has a delicious, crisp coating. You’ll see an ingenious technique for “dredging” the chicken with flour and learn why it’s best to let the breaded chicken sit for a bit before frying. You’ll see how to fry the chicken just to golden brown before transferring it to a baking pan and adding sauce (but not too much!), cheese, and herbs. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Chicken Parmesan. It's a delicious meal that seems fancy but is actually pretty easy to make.

I made this recipe in the past and it is without a doubt the best chicken parmesan I have every eaten. I did made my own sauce with a chilli sauce base, spices and tomato paste for a thinker consistency but everything else was exact. Wow it was amazing.
