  • Prep Time:10 minutes
  • Cook Time:30 minutes
  • Total Time:40 minutes


  • 2.5 – 3 lb chicken breast
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ tablespoon dried minced garlic
  • ½ tablespoon dried minced onion
  • ½ tablespoon dried oregano
  • ½ tablespoon dried basil
  • ½ tablespoon dried parsley
  • ¼ tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup jarred marinara sauce
  • 6 oz shredded mozzarella


  • Preheat oven to 400. Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Beat egg in one small wide bowl. In a second bowl combine the parmesan cheese with all the spices and mix.
  • Dip each piece of chicken in the egg and then the cheese, coating both sides. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20-30 min. You want to chicken to be about 145-150 degrees before you add the sauce and the cheese.
  • Top each piece with sauce and then shredded mozzarella. Bake for another 5-10 min until the chicken is 160 degrees when checked with a meat thermometer and the cheese is melted and bubbly. You can broil for a minute or two at the end to brown the cheese.


Chicken Breasts: The recipe was created using 6 large chicken breasts totally 2.5-3 pounds. If you use smaller pieces of chicken you will need to adjust the cooking time.
Internal Temperature: You are looking for the chicken to be about 158-160 when removed from the oven. The temperature will rise a few more degrees as it rests during serving. If you cook it to 160 and let it rest for a few minutes, the bacteria will indeed be killed, and the chicken will be moist.
