From the tender covered chicken, to the icky dissolved cheese, and also the final coating of contemporary pasta sauce and basil. YUM!

The Best Chicken cheese instruction
We’ve in all probability all had our fair proportion of mediocre or perhaps dangerous Chicken cheese. you recognize the sort that’s overcooked, it's very little flavor, the breading is therefore therefore, the sauce is covering the complete surface of the covered chicken and absorbs right into the crumbs creating it soggy, and also the cheese is overcooked and chewy.


This instruction is that the opposite of all those negatives. You get:

  • A perfectly golden brown tender cheese crust. And it’s astonishingly crisp due to the additional tender Panko and preparation it in oil.
  • Sauce solely coated the cheese that protects that tender layer of crumbs, therefore you wont find yourself with a soggy breading (whats the purpose of breading if you’re simply progressing to soak it in a very wet sauce?).
  • It has nice flavor throughout. There’s cheese and herbs within the breading, 2 types of cheese cowl the highest, basil, onion and garlic within the home-baked pasta sauce, and it’s finished with a lot of contemporary basil.
  • The cheese isn’t excessively chewy. If you pull it out of the broiler when simply a moment or 2 it ought to still be stretchable and icky.

  6. Adjust oven rack 4-inches from broiler element and preheat broiler.
  7. In a shallow dish, whisk together flour and egg until smooth. In a separate shallow dish, toss together Parmesan cheese, Panko bread crumbs, garlic powder, oregano and 1/4 tsp pepper. 
  8. Pat chicken dry with paper towels then working with 1 chicken cutlet at a time, dredge chicken in egg mixture coating both sides and allowing excess to run off, then immediately transfer to Parmesan mixture and coat both sides with mixture, while pressing to allow crumbs to adhere. 
  9. Transfer chicken to a plate and repeat process with remaining chicken cutlets. Pour olive oil into a 10-inch non-stick skillet and heat over medium-high heat. 
  10. Once oil is shimmering, add 2 coated chicken cutlets and fry without moving them until bottom is crispy and golden brown, about 2 - 3 minutes, then using metal tongs rotate to opposite side and cook until golden brown, about 2 - 3 minutes longer until (chicken should be about 155 degrees, it will cook just briefly in oven). 
  11. Transfer fried chicken to a baking sheet. Repeat process with remaining 2 pieces of chicken.
  12. Toss Mozzarella and provolone together and sprinkle cheese mixture in a mound over cutlets. 
  13. Broil in oven until cheese is melted (you can let it brown a little if you like) about 1 - 2 minutes (keep a close eye on it!).
