Steps to make Chicken Parmesan Pasta
For Crispy Chicken Parmesan- We are using boneless chicken breast. Cut chicken into fillets. Using a meat mallet beat chicken to a uniform thickness. I have cut the fillets into half so that it fits better in the pan.
Mix breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, flour, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt to taste. This combination of breading gives the best crispy chicken. Egg coating in the chicken helps the breading stick evenly to the chicken.
