Introduction: Chicken Parmesan (Enhanced Tomato Sauce)

I got to say when it comes to chicken parmesan, I generally enjoy the sauce more than the meat (and hence why the overflowing sauce in the picture). In this recipe, I will be making my own "post-processing" to the grocery store tomato sauce, while still demoing the basic steps (surprisingly troublesome) to making a chicken parmesan.

To make this dish more presentable, just add less sauce to the plate... Like seriously, don't bury the chicken with sauce.

Step 1: Materials

Main ingredients
  • Chicken breast (using fillet here)
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Cheddar cheese
  • tomato sauce
  • Roma tomato

Other materials

  • bread crumbs
  • flour
  • 1 egg
  • basil
  • rosemary
  • thyme
  • butter
  • garlic
  • shallot

Step 2: Cutting Board Business

  • (if using whole cheese) grate cheese to medium size strands
  • finely dice tomato and shallot
  • crush 2 cloves of garlic

Step 3: Chicken Prep

  • Remove any outstanding membrane and ligaments on the meat
  • season with rosemary and pepper
  • cover with flour
  • whisk an egg in a bowl
  • mix 1 spoon Parmesan with half cup bread crumbs
  • cover each chicken piece with egg thoroughly
  • cover chicken pieces with bread crumbs, press down on to the chicken to get the bread to stick.

Step 4: Sauce

  • In a hot pan, add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, high heat.
  • Place in the crushed garlic cloves and let it brown lightly. remove it from pan
  • Add shallot and saute nicely
  • Add tomato and tomato sauce, mix well, reduce to medium heat.
  • melt one teaspoon of butter and sprinkle in basil leaves
  • cook for 3-4 minutes and remove from heat.

Step 5: Fry Chicken

  • In a hot pan, add 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • put in the chicken, cook at medium heat for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown

Step 6: Putting It Together

  • Remove chicken from pan
  • add shredded cheddar cheese and a tad bit more Parmesan
  • pour (or, just add a spoonful) the warm tomato sauce over the cheese.
  • Enjoy!
