Microwave Chicken Parmesan

When you think chicken parmesan, although it’s pretty basic and not too hard to make you think there’s a little time and effort involved, and then of course the time it takes to bake it in the oven.  Get all that out of your mind now, here’s a great easy chicken recipe for microwave chicken parmesan, 15 minutes from prep to table.

Microwave Chicken Parmesan

serves 4

What you need:

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

What you do:

Combine the sauce, italian seasoning and garlic powder in a microwave safe bowl. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on 50% power. Make sure you cover it so it doesn’t splatter.

On a deep plate combine the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and parsley.  Mix your eggs in a separate dish. Dip the chicken breasts in the egg and then coat with the breadcrumb mixture.

Place in a lightly greased microwave safe baking dish.  If your microwave doesn’t turn, give the dish a half turn after 5 minutes or so.

Cook for 10 to 12 minutes.

Cover chicken with the tomato sauce and then top with the mozzarella cheese. Cook on 50% power for another couple minutes to heat through and melt the cheese.

Make it a meal:

A nice way to make this a meal is to serve this dish over some pasta, and add a side salad. If you are must a crunchy bread will make a nice addition to this dish.

What did we think?

The original dish used cornflakes I much prefer the italian breadcrumbs. This dish was good, but you know how it is with the microwave. It is good, but I think it would still be much better out of the oven. It was easy enough to make and everyone ate it, but didn’t get calls for seconds.  I think we’ll probably stick with our regular chicken parm recipe.
