The best way to enjoy a classic recipe is to keep it simple. The chicken and cheese should be a gorgeous golden-brown hue when finished. See below for step-by-step instructions on how to cook our chicken parmesan to perfection.


  • 4 parmesan-crusted chicken cutlets
  • ¼ c vegetable oil*
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper*

  • 1 bag (8 oz) The Fresh Market Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Veggie steamer bag of choice
  • Fresh basil*


COOKTIME 35 minutesSERVINGS Serves 4

Add the sauce to a medium saucepan and bring to a low simmer to warm through.

While sauce simmers, heat oil in a cast-iron skillet or heavy bottomed sauté pan over medium heat until hot, 2-3 minutes. Carefully add the chicken cutlets and pan-fry on both sides until golden brown, 4-5 minutes per side, until cooked through.** Cook the chicken in batches if necessary, adding more oil as needed, so as not to crowd the pan. Remove to a paper-towel-lined plate.

Place cooked chicken in a single layer in a shallow baking pan and top each chicken cutlet with a spoonful of sauce followed by an even layer of cheese. Reserve remaining sauce.

Preheat broiler to high with rack 6 inches from heating element. Broil the chicken cutlets until cheese is golden brown and sauce begins to bubble, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from oven.

Microwave steamer bag according to package directions. Caution, steamer bag will be hot and may release steam when opened.

To serve, place chicken on plate and pour over remaining sauce. Top with fresh basil if desired and serve alongside broccoli or Tuscan herb veggies.

For Garlic Knots (Ready to eat. Heating instructions below, if desired.)

Preheat oven to 350F. Wrap garlic knots in aluminum foil and place in oven for 8-10 minutes until warmed through.
