Chicken Parmesan

This is one of my favorite meals in the world to eat! The recipe is from the Pioneer Woman so of course it must be good! I would have to say the sauce for this recipe is the best sauce I have tasted! But the chicken is soo delicious too! It has a few ingredients, but it's pretty simple and fun to make. I hope you enjoy!!


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (plus more to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (plus more to taste)
  • 1 package of boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins (or 6 breasts pounded to uniform thinness)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 or 3 14.5 ounce cans crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pound thin linguine
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced (2 teaspoons)
  • Sprinkle of Parsley

  • Wash the chicken and set aside
  • Mix together in medium large bowl flour, salt, and pepper
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides then dredge chicken in flour mixture, set aside
  • In a very large skillet over medium high heat, melt butter in olive oil until sizzling
  • Place the pieces of chicken in the skillet and fry until nice and golden brown on both sides

  • Remove from skillet, set aside and keep warm (wrap with aluminum foil on plate)
  • Without cleaning skillet, on medium low heat, add onion and garlic, saute for 2 minutes, or until the onion starts to brown
  • Pour the crushed tomatoes in, stir to combine
  • Add sugar, then add salt and pepper to taste
  • Add 1 cup of Parmesan

  • Stir and reduce the heat to low (3 to 4), and simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes 
  • While the sauce is simmering, cook the noodles according to package (and garlic bread if you'd like)

  • Individually top with the noodles, chicken, then sauce and Parmesan and enjoy!
Additional option: After simmering the sauce you could then lay the chicken breast on top of the sauce and completely cover them with the remaining cheese. Cover skillet and simmer until cheese is melted ( about 5 minutes). Then place this on top on the bowls or plates with noodles. My family is to impatient to do this, but it would be worth the few extra minutes!
