tips on making sheet pan chicken parmesan

  • I have found this recipe works best when my chicken breasts are all equally sized. I find it difficult to cook evenly when one side of the chicken breast is thicker than the otherTo solve this, I simply but the chicken breasts in a gallon ziplock bag. Make sure it is good quality, or double up bags.I then hammer, or roll out the chicken breasts with a rolling pin, to reach a desired thinness and evenness.I then remove the chicken from the bag, and continue the recipe as directed.
  • When dipping your chicken breasts in the various dippings, I used a fork. However, after you dip it in the egg mixture they tend to get a little slippery.You can easily use your hands for this step. I found it easier, and had more control over the process. It was also easier to get bread crumbs on the chicken breasts. I almost had to pat them into the chicken breast a little bit.
  • Be sure to spray the top of the chicken breast with a little bit of oil or butter, just to help the bread crumbs get crunchy and not soggy when they bake. This will really give it that chicken parmesan crunch.

what other vegetables could i use?

I love this recipe, because you could easily switch out the broccoli, and not have to switch up the baking time or other ingredients, to do so.

Here are some of my favorite veggie replacements when broccoli just isn’t cutting it for me.

-sliced carrots
-asparagus
-zucchini
-cauliflower
-red potatoes
-sweet potatoes
-butternut squash
-bell peppers
