Stove Top Poor Man's Chicken Parmesan

What you'll need:
  • a big pan with a lid
  • 20 minutes
  • olive oil
  • as many boneless skinless chicken thighs as you can fit in your pan
  • Italian seasoned bread crumbs (store bought or made at home :)
  • shredded Parmesan cheese
  •  shredded mozzarella cheese
  •  dried basil and oregano
  •  two big tomatoes (sliced)


In case your not familiar with boneless skinless chicken thighs, they are the "poor man's chicken breast"...... they are by far the most versatile cut of chicken available, and when you find them in the meat them all and stock your freezer :) 

Put your pan on the burner and add enough oil to completely coat the bottom.  Then "open" each chicken thigh, flatten it out on a big plate of bread crumbs and thoroughly coat both sides. Wait until the oil is hot then add each piece one at a time.  After all are nicely browned on the bottom, turn them, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, then top with sliced tomatoes, mozzarella, dried basil and oregano.....put the lid on, turn the burner off, and leave it sit for 10 minutes......serve and enjoy :)
