Chicken Parmesan (or Chicken Parmigiana) is a classic Italian dish, wherein Chicken breast slices are breaded and shallow fried till crispy,topped with simple Marinara Sauce(or tomato sauce/spaghetti sauce) and mozzarella which is further baked to perfection.

This recipe although sounds very difficult to handle but is superbly easy and amazingly delicious when you put all the puzzle pieces together!

Here is more information about this dish.

Why do they call it Chicken Parmesan?

Italian Chicken Parmigiana is derived from the original version of Eggplant Parmesan,where slices of Eggplant,breaded and fried and served with marinara sauce and mozzarella,baked to perfection.

This dish originated in United States and is very popular in Italian-American Restaurants.

What to serve with Chicken Parmesan?

You can basically serve this dish as it is as it's complete meal in itself. But optionally you can serve it with Garlic Bread or with Spaghetti Aglio e Olio.

Alternatively try serving it with steamed /roasted vegetables,
mashed potato,rice or even zucchini noodles too.

I also love the combination of Chicken Gnocchi Soup served along with this dish,its too good!

What sauce goes with Chicken Parmesan Spaghetti?

Usually the sauce that is served with Chicken Parmesan is classic Marinara sauce.

But alternatively you can use any tomato sauce/spaghetti sauce of your choice too. 

I love the crispy chicken cutlet served with little marinara and topped with mozzarella,further baked and then served with spaghetti and little more of marinara sauce to get the flavors well.

Can I serve this with my homemade Marinara Sauce/ tomato sauce/ spaghetti sauce / Jar sauce?

If you like to get store bought sauce for this recipe then very well go ahead and use store bought Jar of Tomato sauce / marinara sauce/spaghetti sauce.

I have made my own easy and simple homemade Marinara sauce and its very easy to put together but you can save on time and use a jar sauce.

In the recipe I will share my quick chunky marinara sauce recipe,please feel free to use that recipe or use your choice of sauce.

Marinara sauce is altogether another topic and I will share its details in depth in another post soon.
