Super easy chicken parmesan. My kids call it “pizza chicken” and love it. The chicken is flavourful, gluten free and takes about 20 minutes to come together.
I serve it with anything! Broccoli or green salad works well. A Caesar salad would be good, as well as rice or potatoes.
You will only need about 3/4 of the can of diced tomatoes for this recipe. So just freeze the rest for a soup or chili.
- 4-5 chicken cutlets
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- one 14 oz can Italian diced tomatoes
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- freshly ground black pepper to taste
- fresh basil leaves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all spices and salt and pepper. Heat an oven safe pan like a cast iron to medium heat. Coat with olive oil.
Season each side of chicken generously with spice mixture. Sear chicken in pan a few minutes each side until golden.
Spoon a few tablespoons of tomatoes onto each piece of chicken. Top with parmesan cheese and bake for ten minutes. I like to reserve a little cheese from the 1/2 cup to plate with. After ten minutes your house will smell amazing. Top with fresh basil and enjoy.
