Ingredients

  1. Check 6tablespoons canola oil
  2. Check 1pound chicken cutlets (about 4), 1/4-inch thick
  3. Check kosher salt and pepper
  4. Check 1/2cup all-purpose flour
  5. Check 2 eggs, beaten
  6. Check 1cup bread crumbs
  7. Check 1cup jarred marinara sauce, warmed
  8. Check 1cup (3 ounces) grated Parmesan
  9. Check garlic bread (optional)

Directions

  1. Heat broiler. Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Season the chicken with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Dredge in the flour, then in the eggs (letting any excess drip off), then in the bread crumbs.
  3. Working in two batches (using the remaining 3 tablespoons oil for the second batch), cook the chicken until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. Cut the cutlets in half crosswise. Place 4 halves on a baking sheet, spoon half the sauce over them, top with the remaining cutlets and sauce, and sprinkle with Parmesan.
  5. Broil until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Divide among plates. Serve with the garlic bread (if desired).
