chicken parmigiana with fettuccine

Chicken Parmigiana with Fettuccine

This classic dish, which is also known as chicken parmesan or simply chicken parm, is a tasty Italian recipe which is cheap to make and makes chicken breasts go a long way. Chicken breasts are first breaded and then topped with tomato sauce and cheese. We are using parmesan and perhaps some mozzarella too. Sometimes provolone is used as well. Some people like to add a slice of ham or bacon too, so you can tweak this recipe if you want, using any of these options.

You can use Ritz crackers or similar wheat crackers, leaving the salt out of the recipe if you are using salty crackers. This recipe is often served as an entrée in the United States, with pasta, spaghetti or mashed potatoes. The chicken can also be served between bread slices to make a sandwich. If you wish to try this, use less tomato sauce else your sandwich will be too soggy. Fries are a typical side dish for chicken parmigiana in Australia. We like to use fettuccine, and also add a simple garden salad on the side.

The chicken is coated in egg and then seasoned cracker crumbs. This crispy coating sticks perfectly to the chicken. Next you need to add garlic-tomato sauce and parmesan. You can add some mozzarella too if you want to. This recipe makes enough to serve six people but you can halve it if that is too much. The dish takes about 40 minutes to cook in total, so start the fettuccine in the final 10 minutes, so it is ready at the same time as the chicken. Serve some Italian red wine on the side if you like, or a lightly chilled Italian blush wine. Continue reading
