Crunchy Italian Chicken Recipe With Parmesan & Mozzarella Is Gluten-free

This crunchy chicken breast recipe was inspired by my Parmesan-crusted chicken recipe. Instead of just Parmesan cheese, I added some mozzarella and Italian seasoning. The chicken is crispy, juicy and has fantastic flavor.

Serve this quick and easy chicken recipe with a vegetable and either a grain, potato, rice or pasta. I served mine with cacio e pepe ravioli and broccoli. This is definitely a recipe for your nonstick pan, so no cast iron skillets here.

Cuisine: American 
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 chicken breasts, pounded out to 1/2-inch thickness
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • dried Italian seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the egg, water and garlic in a small bowl. Whisk to combine. Put the shredded Parmesan and mozzarella cheese onto a plate. Season the chicken with salt, pepper and the Italian seasoning, to taste.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture then dredge in the cheese, pressing to that it adheres to the chicken. Put into the hot oil and cook without moving for about 4 minutes. (This helps the chicken form a crust so it doesn't stick to the pan.) Carefully flip with a spatula and cook about 2 to 3 more minutes on the other side, or until cooked through.
