Serve Quick Chicken Parmesan with garlic bread and a tossed green salad.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/3 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • 1/3 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1, 14 ounce can Italian-seasoned diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/3 cup pitted ripe olives, cut in half


  1. Place each chicken breast between 2 pieces of parchment paper. Flatten chicken to at least 1/4 inch thickness by alternately pounding and rolling with a rolling pin.
  2. In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt and black pepper. In a second shallow bowl, lightly beat egg using a whisk. Dip chicken breasts in egg; coat with bread crumb mixture. Sprinkle with any remaining bread crumbs; set aside.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet until hot. Add chicken breasts; cook 3-5 minutes per side or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm.
  4. Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in skillet. Press garlic using a garlic press. Add bell pepper; cook and stir until pepper is crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and olives; stir. Simmer 5 minutes. Serve tomato sauce over chicken.
