How to Make Chicken Parmesan

Plays: 276210

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. See more Chef John videos >>

Absolutely delicious! Will never go back to making Chicken Parm any other way. Served for a small dinner party. Everyone was extremely complimentary and helped themselves to seconds and thirds! Thank you Chef John.

Chicken was not fully cooked. I baked breaded chicken first....then added sauce, herbs and cheese. Then baked or you can broil until cheese is melted.

I love how the chicken turned out! It was cooked to perfection, not raw but not dry. The only change I made was I added a bunch of seasonings because I like my food spicy.
