Servings 4 people


  • Large pan
  • Baking sheet
  • 3 small bowls


  • 2 full chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise and beaten to a 1 inch thickness
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp herbs de provence
  • 1-2 eggs beaten
  • ½ cup panko
  • ½ cup flour
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • ¾ cup pasta sauce I used Compliment's Roasted Onion & Garlic Pasta Sauce.
  • 1 cup mozzarella grated
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese


  • Cut the 2 chicken breasts in half lengthwise and then beat each half until chicken is about 1 inch thick. Season each cutlet with ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp pepper, ½ tsp garlic powder and ½ tsp herbs de provence.
  • In 3 small bowls, put the flour, egg and panko in individual bowls. Coat the seasoned chicken cutlets in the flour, then the egg wash, and lastly the panko until fully covered.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large pan, put oil on medium-high heat. When oil is hot, fry the chicken cutlets for 4 minutes on each side.
  • Once fried, place the cutlets on a baking sheet. Put 1/4 cup of the mozzarella on each cutlet. Then cover the mozzarella with 2-3 tbsp of pasta sauce per cutlet. Finally, sprinkle 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese on each cutlet.
  • Bake the assembled chicken cutlets for 10 minutes.
  • Let cool for 2 minutes and they're ready to serve!
