  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 cup baby spinach chopped
  • 1 cup mozzarella grated


  • Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Combine panko and parmesan cheese in a small bowl.
  • Coat the chicken with the bread crumb mixture pressing gently to adhere.
  • Heat 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the cutlets (do in batches to avoid crowding) and cook 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. (Wipe skillet before repeating with remaining chicken pieces.)
  • Remove chicken from skillet and pour half of the pasta sauce onto the bottom of the skillet.
  • Gently lay the chicken on top.
  • Top each piece of chicken with a couple tablespoons of sauce, 1/4 cup chopped spinach, and two tablespoons of mozzarella. Just spoon and sprinkle till it looks right :)
  • Place in broiler for 2-4 minutes until cheese just begins to turn golden brown.
  • Serve immediately.
