30-Minute Chicken Parmesan: Weeknight Doable Dinners

As traditional comfort food, chicken Parmesan holds its own, loaded with cheese and tomato sauce. In this collection I set out to push the boundaries a bit, creating more healthy, easier, and quicker ways to satisfy that craving while preserving the basic flavors and textures of the original. And all of these recipes are made using one pot (or grill) for easy prep and cleanup.

Grilled Chicken Parmesan Paillard

Italian comfort food meets the grill.

Chicken Parmesan on the grill? I say why not — this is the ultimate summertime version of the traditional Italian dish, pounded out thin and sprinkled with fresh, whole herbs and bursts of ripe, freshly grilled tomatoes.

Quick Skillet Chicken Parmesan

Try a crisp and cheesy stovetop version of beloved chicken Parm.

Chicken tenders are lightly breaded with panko, pan-fried, nestled into a fire-roasted tomato pan sauce, and sprinkled with just the right amount of Parmesan and mozzarella. It’s quick and contains all the textures and flavors of the original.

Weeknight Baked Chicken Parmesan

One-pan chicken Parmesan in just 30 minutes makes the weeknight dinner list.

In this family-friendly method, I eliminated the need to pan-fry the chicken and instead bake it in the casserole prior to adding the sauce and cheese. Bet you won’t notice the difference!

Easy Chicken Parmesan Sandwich

Crunchy, cheesy chicken Parmesan — without all the work.

Sometimes you just want that two-handed, five-napkin kind of sandwich, oozing gooey cheese and hot tomato sauce. Here’s the easy way to get you there, with no breaded and fried chicken needed.
