Among my top favorite chicken recipes, this chicken Parmesan recipe is the reason why I truly believe chicken and cheese are made for each other. The winning combination of fresh Parmesan, Provolone and Mozzarella cheese adds an extra kick of flavor and texture to the already amazing and crunchy baked chicken. It’s simply the go-to dish for any occasion that everyone will love.
Although it looks a little overwhelming at first with all the cheese and crunchy chicken, which seems like it contains a bunch of calories and fat, this chicken dish is reasonably healthy.
The crispy battered chicken is actually baked, so it’s the healthier version with the same crunchy mouthfeel of the originally fried chicken. Not to mention that chicken breast is a great source of lean protein, yet rather low in calories and sodium. Additionally, it is totally okay to put in less cheese if you want to cut more cals.
For every serving of this chicken Parmesan, you only consume less than 25 grams of carbs, making it a great low-carbohydrate food.
The cooking time would depend on the amount of chicken you plan to do. If you’re baking two halves of chicken breast, they’ll need to cook at 450oF (230oC) for 20 minutes, or the cheese is browned and bubbly, and the meat is cooked through. You can take the chicken out and cut to check if it’s done.
The fantastic three-cheese combo of Parmesan, Mozzarella and Provolone is perfect for this chicken dish. While Parmesan lends a lot of amazing savory flavor and Mozzarella provides the perfect ooey gooey texture, Provolone adds a mellow richness to the chicken.
I would highly recommend you to use freshly grated cheese instead of its packaged pre-shredded version because the flavor is much finer and it will melt beautifully. To see more details: https://healthykitchen101.com/chicken-parmesan-recipe/
