Giada De Laurentiis' Trick For Chicken Parmesan With No Breading
Instead of using a seasoned breadcrumb mixture and shallow frying the chicken when making chicken parmesan, Giada De Laurentiis opts to marinate her chicken before cooking.
By marinating the meat in a blend of olive oil and spices, including dried Sicilian oregano and Tuscany salt, she infuses the chicken with flavor in each bite.
This marinade is then brushed onto the chicken breast, and the chicken is pan-seared and topped with your traditional chicken parmesan toppings.
You still get all the flavors of chicken parmesan that you love, but by pan-searing the chicken, you also get a subtle hint of delicious caramelization.
