20-Minute Chicken Parmesan

Ready in 25 minutes

Quick, easy, and delicious.

"Made this tonight and it was very good! Tweaked it a little by adding salt, pepper and a tiny bit of paprika before dipping in egg. I used gluten-free flour instead of breadcrumbs and cooked in olive oil instead of butter. After summering, I put it in a baking dish and added the cheese and baked for 10 minutes before broiling for a few to brown the cheese. I've never made chicken Parmesan before, but it came out SO good, this is a definite keeper. "

"A variation on this recipe  If you and yours like Alfredo Sauce as much as I do, this is the recipe to try! Takes mere minutes to assemble and make; you will love the crispy seasoned chicken in this cheesy, creamy dish!" Firebyrd Firebyrd

"If you like it, you might also try this  This tastes like something you'd order at a high-end restaurant, only you can make it at home in under 30 minutes! Slightly spicy and wonderfully rich & filling, this will become a fast favorite!" Firebyrd Firebyrd

"A variation on this recipe  A rich, creamy and very delicious way to have chicken breasts-in casserole form! Another quick & easy dish for those busy nights!" Firebyrd Firebyrd

"If you like it, you might also try this  Bacon, alfredo and pasta--pretty much a match made in heaven! This recipe uses ready-made ingredients that you're likely to have on hand, too! It can be thrown together in a matter of minutes and is a great way to use leftover chicken (or even a rotisserie chicken). If you know that you will have a busy day, you can prep this meal in the morning and throw it in the oven right before you're ready to eat!" Firebyrd Firebyrd

It was very good! My husband loved it. Steamed some broccoli for the side, but it took longer than 20 minutes for sure

The meal itself was delicious but the name of this recipe needs tweaking. The chicken alone takes 20 minutes but when you add the other items (spaghetti, sauce, and cheese) it is at least an hour to make. We use all fresh ingredients so my opinion may not effect everyone.
