Easy Baked Chicken Parmesan

This Easy Baked Chicken Parmesan is my go-to easy dinner when I don't have anything planned because I always have all the ingredients on hand. Make it a complete Italian meal served over spaghetti with a green salad.

Cuisine Italian
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Yield 4 servings


  • 4 chicken breasts I like to butterfly them or pound them with a meat mallet so they are thinner.
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • jar of marinara sauce
  • mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix the Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and garlic powder in a shallow dish. It really doesn’t matter how much Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs you have just make sure it’s equal parts. Melt butter in a shallow bowl. Dip the chicken in the melted butter, then the bread crumb mixture then place on the baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Spoon some spaghetti sauce over the middle of the chicken and sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top for the last 5-10 minutes of baking. Serve over cooked spaghetti with more marinara sauce.
