Kid friendly 15 minute chicken parmesan. A crunchy crust with Panko breadcrumbs makes the difference!

Updated on July 9, 2007

Kid friendly 5 minute chicken parmesan

This is devoured by adults and children alike, but makes no claims for any kind of Italian American authenticity. This is quick and dirty, easy-peasy, and is great for any green vegetable suspicious, reluctant eater in the house, whether they be three or six feet tall.

The secret to this dish is the panko. Panko are asian style bread crumbs, and nothing makes a crunchier crispy crust than panko.

Chicken parmesan, for about 4 little ones

2 chicken breasts, sliced into quarter inch flat long-way thick slices, cut them as big as you can, and you should get three or four good sized slices out of each breast, depending on the size.

1 small jar of pizza sauce. If you have kids, you probably have something like this lurking in the cupboard

Mozzarella cheese, grated. You an add a little bit of freshly grated parmesan, to more live up to the dish's namesake if you wish

Flour, a beaten egg, and salt and pepper

Panko bread crumbs spread out on a plate

Preheat broiler

Sprinkle salt and pepper over the cut slices of chicken, and then dredge completely in flour.

One at a time, dip each slice of chicken in the beaten egg, and then drop in the breadcrumbs. Use a fork to turn the chicken over until completely coated in breadcrumbs. Repeat until all the chicken has been breaded.

You can either deep fry these, or pan fry them. Deep frying is actually easier, but pan frying is more popular with the home cook. Add a generous amount of vegetable oil to a frying pan, and heat over medium. When hot (a piece of dropped in bread crumb starts bubbling at the surface immediately) add as many pieces of chicken as will fit in your pan without crowding.

These will cook quite quickly, and about 4-5 minutes total, flipping once, is all the time it takes. Repeat with remaining chicken.

Arrange chicken onto a backing tray, and top each piece of chicken with a couple of generous spoonfuls of the pizza sauce and some grated cheese. Pass under the broiler, and give it a couple of minutes, or just until the cheese is all melted, and remove.

That's it. This is very kid friendly, and is the perfect side for spaghetti, for an even more completely child loved meal. Also good as chicken parmesan sandwiches, with good crusty bread.

Easy, got all of the food groups covered (especially oil!) and they'll all eat it, pretty much perfect from a parent's point of view.

Everything is crispy and delicious with panko
