Einkorn Chicken Parmesan Recipe
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- salt and pepper
- 1/3 cup all-purpose einkorn flour, 1.5 oz
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 3/4 cup einkorn breadcrumbs, toasted, or gluten free panko
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (for breading)
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, or coconut oil
- 8 fresh basil leaves, sliced thinly
- 8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
- marinara sauce
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (for topping)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Rinse and trim chicken breasts then cut into cutlets.
- Season both sides with salt and pepper then set aside.
- Collect four plates for breading station: one for flour, one for beaten eggs, one for mixture of breadcrumbs and ½ cup Parmesan cheese, and one to hold chicken once it is breaded. NOTE: We strongly recommend you weigh your einkorn flour, if possible, for better accuracy. If you don’t have a scale, fluff the flour with a fork before you measure it in a cup.
- Begin by placing one cutlet into flour, turn to coat completely then pat cutlet to remove all excess flour.
- Next, dip cutlet into beaten egg, turn to coat completely and allow excess to drip off before transferring to breadcrumb mixture.
- Then place cutlet in breadcrumb mixture, turn to cover both sides and press lightly to adhere breadcrumbs to chicken. Place breaded cutlet on fourth plate and reserve.
- Repeat steps with remaining cutlets.
- Heat ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Fry prepared chicken cutlets until golden brown on both sides (3-4 minutes per side), working in batches if necessary, and set aside.
- Assemble final dish by coating the bottom of a 9" x 13" casserole dish with enough sauce to cover completely.
- Place the fried chicken cutlets into casserole dish on top of the sauce and cover chicken with remaining tomato sauce and sprinkle with chopped basil.
- Place a slice of mozzarella on top of each piece of chicken then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
- Bake 12-15 minutes until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly. Allow to rest 5 minutes. Enjoy!
You can bread the chicken up to a day in advance to save a little time!
