Anytime I go to an Italian restaurant, I skim the menu and always end up landing on a parmesan-crusted chicken entree. This for sure has to be one of my favorite go-to Italian meals. Making this at home is extremely easy and is not difficult at all. With only a few ingredients you can have this restaurant-quality meal in the comfort of your home.

Here you will have all the spices that make this amazing dish. You may always opt-out of using the egg wash for the chicken, as you can always just use water from rinsing off the chicken for the flour to stick. I would also recommend that your chicken be thawed and use thinner slices. If your chicken is fairly thick, it is always a good idea to tenderize it or fillet it in half length-wise.

This recipe makes a large meal. Not to worry if you don’t eat it all. It is perfect for lunches or freezing later for a convenient and ready-made meal. My family always puts our leftovers in individual meal prep containers for making an easy lunch for everyone the next day.

I would like to thank Barilla for the amazing ingredients to make a big part of this meal’s delicious flavors. In this recipe, I am using Barilla spaghetti noodles and my new favorite… basil pesto. Their pesto made it so easy to give the pasta a perfectly seasoned taste and one small jar is the correct amount for one of Barilla’s boxes of noodles. This turned out so good and easy to use. I love the ingredients just like any other Barilla food item.
