  1. Preheat an oven to 425°F.
  2. Place flour in shallow dish. Place the eggs in a second dish (and beat with a fork).

  3. Combine Panko, Italian crumbs, grated parmesan, 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, salt and pepper to taste in a third shallow dish.

  4. Pound chicken breasts to 1/2 inch thick (if they're very large you can cut them in half). 

  5. Dip chicken into flour and shake to remove any excess. Dip chicken in beaten eggs & then into bread crumb mixture (press to adhere). 

  6. Preheat oil in a large pan. Brown chicken on each side, about 4 minutes per side or until golden (it does not need to cook through as it will continue to cook in the oven).

  7. Place 1 1/2 cups of marinara sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 dish. Add browned chicken. Top each piece with a couple tablespoons of marinara sauce, mozzarella and parmesan.

  8. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden and bubbly and chicken reaches 165°F. Sprinkle with fresh herbs and serve over pasta.
