Sheet-Pan Chicken Parmesan

Saucy chicken, melty mozzarella and crisp-tender broccoli—all in one pan. What could be better? —Becky Hardin, St. Peters, Missouri
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen broccoli florets (about 10 ounces)
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh basil, optional


  • Preheat oven to 400°. Lightly coat a 15x10x1-in. baking pan with cooking spray.
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk egg. In a separate shallow bowl, stir together the next 5 ingredients. Dip chicken breast in egg; allow excess to drip off. Then dip in crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere. Repeat with remaining chicken. Place chicken breasts in center third of baking pan. Spritz with cooking spray.
  • Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Spread broccoli in a single layer along both sides of sheet pan (if broccoli is frozen, break pieces apart). Return to oven; bake 10 minutes longer. Remove from oven.
  • Preheat broiler. Spread marinara sauce over chicken; top with shredded cheese. Broil chicken and broccoli 3-4 in. from heat until cheese is golden brown and vegetables are tender, 3-5 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with basil.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Try serving this on a bed of riced cauliflower. A number of brands are available in the vegetable section of the freezer case.
  • Like most Italian-inspired dishes, this would pair wonderfully with a thick slice of garlic bread.

      My family really loved this! It was easy and quick to put together. I love only having to use one pan! I used cauliflower as that's what I had on hand and it worked fine too! Thank you for sharing I will definitely make this again.

      Good, easy, quick dish. I added some Italian seasoning, as it seemed a little bland. Also tossed in some sliced mushrooms towards the end of the baking time. Served it over pasta with crusty bread.

      Excellent recipe although next time I won't bother with the broccoli. I just loved the chicken!

      This is a quick and easy way to make chicken parm and it’s truly delicious. I made it a few times without the sauce as strips or nuggets and it’s just as great! I also made it again yesterday with cauliflower. So many possibilities and really really good!

      This was fairly quick to put together with tasty results. I tossed broccoli with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese and baked on a separate sheet. I foil lined both pans, making cleanup a breeze. I served with a side of angel hair and topped both chicken and pasta with fresh basil. I will be making this again.

      Love, love, love this! I tossed the broccoli with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and a little olive oil and put it in the oven at the same time as the chicken. Since I didn't have marinara sauce, I just used a little of my quick and easy home made pasta sauce. Big hit! Can't wait to make it again.

      Huge hit with my family!! Even my extremely picky 9 and 4 year olds loved it. I doubled the recipe hoping for leftovers; there is one sad little piece of chicken left. Amazing recipe. Tip on the broccoli: toss it ahead of baking with olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic and Parmesan cheese. Veggie heroin!

      This was delicious. I made it for a Sunday family supper with a side of spaghetti and some garlic bread not a crumb leftover. C. T. Germansville PA.
