Ingredients you’ll need for the easy chicken recipe

Ingredients for Parmesan chicken recipe

  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 4 Chicken Breasts, boneless
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 16 oz. Crushed Tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoons Basil, chopped – or 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 4 slices Mozzarella Cheese
  • Parsley, chopped

Instructions:

  • If the chicken breasts are thick, flatten them slightly with a meat mallet. It will help them to cook more quickly and evenly.
  • Season one side of the chicken with salt, pepper, and half of the Italian seasoning
  • In a large pan, heat up olive oil and add the chicken, seasoned side down, and cook for 8-10 minutes. (Put a lid on while cooking so the meat doesn’t cook dry.)
  • Season other side of chicken with salt, pepper, and remaining Italian Seasoning while the first side is cooking
  • Flip the chicken and cook for another 8-10 minutes depending on the size of the chicken. Chicken is done when the internal temperature is 170°
  • Remove the chicken and set aside
  • In the same pan, cook the garlic for about 30 seconds then add the balsamic vinegar, crushed tomatoes, and fresh basil. Mix until well incorporated and cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan on top of the sauce.
