Baked Chicken Parmigiana - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Chicken Parmigiana is an American variation made from a old traditional recipe in southern Italy in Sicily. “Parmegiana” meant twice-cooked aubergine or eggplants. The Sicilians would dip slices of eggplant in a thin layer of beaten egg, bread and fry them, top them with slices of Parmesan cheese and home-made tomato sauce before finally baking them in the oven. Here juicy chicken breasts are replace for the eggplants to create this delicious restaurant style dish.
