One of the things I love best about cooking homemade chicken parmesan is how super tender it is. Something about making family style chicken parm results in just the best experience.

Plus, this recipe is so much easier to make than you might think. I mean, it’s just a few minutes of pan frying and you’re ready to bite into juicy flavorful chicken. Who doesn’t want that?!

Plus, that cheese on top–and the red sauce? That just makes for an amazing combination that you’re not going to find in any other dish.

I love to serve it with additional sliced mozzarella and a baguette so that my guests can dip the bread or add more cheese. I mean, juicy chicken and some cheese on top? Ooh, that’s my love language.
