How to Prepare the Chicken Breasts for Chicken Parmesan Over Angel Hair Pasta
For this recipe, use boneless, skinless chicken breast halves. Cut each half in half again horizontally creating a thin chicken “steak”.
Then lay each thin cut of chicken breast on a cutting board. I prefer using plastic cutting boards for meat. They’re easier to disinfect. Then cover the pieces of chicken breast with plastic wrap or wax paper.
Using a meat-tenderizing hammer or a heavy mug (like mine – I don’t have a meat-tenderizing hammer) pound the chicken breasts until they’re about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle the breasts with some salt. Now they’re ready for dipping and breading.

1 boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into halves
2 eggs beaten plus 1 cup of water for an egg wash
4 ounces of Panko breading
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning mix
1/4 teaspoon of salt
8 oz. fresh mozzarella, sliced
1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
8 ounces angel hair pasta, cooked
Shredded parmesan cheese for garnish
Dash of olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Deep fat fryer filled with cooking oil heating to 340 degrees
Cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally making thin chicken “steaks”. Pound the chicken breast pieces with a meat-tenderizing hammer or with a heavy mug to about 1/4 inch thick. Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer to 34o degrees. Pour the spaghetti sauce into a saucepan and warm on low.
In a plastic bag, add Panko breading, Italian seasoning mix, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Beat two eggs in a bowl and add 1 cup water for an egg wash. Dip the thinned chicken breasts into the egg wash coating them completely.
Then put them in the bag with Panko breading. Close the top of the bag and shake it well to coat the chicken breasts.
Carefully add the breaded chicken breasts to the hot oil in the deep-fat fryer and fry for about 4 minutes.
Check them frequently. Panko breading browns quickly.
Drain the cooked chicken breasts on a plate lined with a paper towel.
Next, start cooking the angel hair pasta according to package directions.
While the pasta cooks, place the chicken breasts in a pan and top with slices of fresh mozzarella. Place under the broiler to melt the cheese over the chicken breasts. This will only take a couple of minutes.
When the pasta is cooked, drain it in a colander. Then drizzle it with a little olive oil to keep the noodles from sticking. Next, plate the pasta. Top the pasta with spaghetti sauce. Then place a chicken breast on top. Sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese.
Serve with Easy Homemade Artisan Bread and olive oil and black pepper for dipping.
