Non-Breaded Chicken Parmesan

  • Prep time 5 mins
  • Cook time 20 mins

Yes the traditional breaded fried chicken parmesan is very good but the extra butter soaked breadcrumbs are just not necessary. We have omitted some unhealthy extras but there is no sacrifice on flavour here. Yum



  1.  Preheat oven to 350º F.
  2.  Preheat a medium sized frying pan on medium heat.
  3.  Season chicken on both sides with salt and chilli powder.
  4.  Add oil to pan and then the seasoned chicken breasts. Lightly brown on both sides and then transfer to a baking sheet.
  5.  Top with as much tomato sauce as you can fit and then sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.
  6.  Place in the oven and bake until a probe thermometer placed in the center of the thickest part of the breast reads 170º F.
  7.  Remove from oven, garnish with fresh oregano and serve with a nice salad and some steamed vegetables.


  •  Parmesan cheese is not the only cheese that will work here. Experiment and try any of your favourite cheeses.
  •  For something totally different, try topping the chicken with some mashed yams instead of the tomato sauce and top with cheese and then bake

    About how long until the chicken will be baked through? I don't have a thermometer at home, but my chicken is currently in the oven. Seems a lovely and throughou recipe so far!

      It all depends on how large the chicken breast is. 25 - 30 minutes usually does the trick.

    This chicken is amazing. There is no loss of flavor without having breading. The best thing about it is kids love it.

    I made a similar version last night and never saw this recipe until I searched no bread crumb chic Parmesan. Your recipe here is similar to what I did except I cooked in oven the entire time and used smoked paprika, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano and basil. Topped with mozzarella. I’ll try your version next.

    We love it. I have fixed it twice! Used mozzarella slices on top of chicken and sauce when I put it in the oven. That was the only change. Wonderful recipe anI am thankful for it!

    Try heating your sauce before putting it on top of your chicken this will decrease cook time as the sauce won't have to come up to temp.
