Crispy, cheesy chicken is smothered in red sauce and served over a pile of your favorite noodles. This chicken parm pasta recipe will definitely have your family begging for seconds!

Another one of my go-to Italian style meals is cheese manicotti. Simple, delicious, and all done in one skillet in just half an hour!

Looking for a vegetarian option? My Nana’s Eggplant Parmesan recipe is just as tasty and makes plenty for guests as well.

Chicken Parmesan Pasta - Tips and Tricks

  • Pat it dry! Removing the excess moisture with a paper towel is crucial to this recipe. It helps the egg wash and cheese adhere better to the surface, ensuring a deliciously crispy exterior.
  • Skip the bagged shreds. These contain anti-caking ingredients that prevent them from melting into that gooeyness you’re looking for.
  • Want extra flavor? Use your favorite blend of Italian cheeses. I love the combination of mozzarella, provolone, and Romano.
  • Make ahead tip: You can dredge the meat the day before and leave it covered in the refrigerator. Just take them out and continue the recipe as written with less preparation to worry about!

Serving Suggestions

I love to use a combination of linguine and broccoli as the base for this chicken parmesan pasta.

You could also skip the noodles and serve some crispy zucchini chips or a green salad on the side. And don’t forget the garlic knots or breadsticks! They are a must for any Italian meal.

Kitchen Tools You Will Need

  • Non-stick Skillet - Everyone needs a good skillet. I use this almost daily for everything from cooking eggs to browning meat.
  • Large Pot and Strainer for the pasta 
  • Shallow Bowls for dredging
  • Instant Read Kitchen Thermometer - Instead of slicing into the meat and losing those delicious juices, check the temperature with this handy tool instead!

FAQ - Common Recipe Questions

How do I prevent the cheese from sliding off while cooking?

Press down on each piece in the pan lightly with a spatula so it really adheres to the meat. When you’re ready to flip, use tongs to avoid losing any coating!

Can I bake this in the oven?

I don’t see why not! Place the meat onto a lined baking sheet and pop it into the oven at 425°F for about 15-20 minutes, or until each piece is cooked through.

Then, simmer the meat in the sauce for a few minutes before melting the mozzarella over the top.

How do I store leftover chicken parmesan pasta?

Allow the dish to cool, then transfer it into an airtight container. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Reheat in the oven or in a covered pan on the stove until warmed through.

  7. why not brown the chicken? cooking for a little longer or at a higher temp would brown the chicken and create a nice golden brown crust. doing that and then putting the sauce on would make for a much better dish, chicken parm is all about the crust!

  8. Ty, You are so right. Browning would bring out the flavor of the chicken. It's not always only about the cheese!!!
