Chicken Parmesan is an Italian-American dish typically featuring breaded chicken, tomato sauce, and mozzarella and parmesan cheese. In America, it’s usually served over pasta or as a sandwich, but in this recipe, it’s on a pizza. It’s a spin on the traditional chicken parmigiana, and you can make it in four easy steps. Plus, the chicken is already cooked and seasoned, so it’s only 20 minutes from start to finish. That’s quicker than delivery.
