Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 chicken cutlets (3-ounces each)
  • 1-1/2 cups marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 16 teaspoons grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces

Instructions

Preheat your oven to a blazing 500°F, ensuring a quick and efficient cooking process. In a small bowl, blend olive oil with rosemary, thyme, and Italian parsley. Season the mixture with salt and freshly ground black pepper according to your taste.

Brush both sides of the chicken cutlets generously with the herb-infused oil, letting the fresh herb flavors seep into the meat. Heat a large oven-proof skillet over high heat, then add the cutlets. Sear them until they turn a beautiful golden brown, taking about 2 minutes on each side.

Take the skillet off the heat and spoon marinara sauce over and around the cutlets, creating a rich tomato base. Top each cutlet with a sprinkle of mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, distributing them evenly. Add pieces of butter atop the cutlets, which will melt and blend with the cheese, creating a creamy topping.

Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 3-5 minutes, or until the cheese forms a golden crust and the chicken is perfectly cooked. Serve hot and enjoy your gourmet home-cooked Chicken Parmesan.
