Crispy Chicken Parmesan Recipe

We began our Gryllies journey when we realized just how damaging the meat industry is to our planet. We've since drastically changed our diets and have been leading our friends and families in the same direction. However, it is very difficult for most people to make such a drastic change overnight and, sometimes, it's just not sustainable for the long term to give up foods you grew up on and have always loved. We believe in everything in moderation and even cutting back on high impact foods will create a positive impact in return. So kick back and enjoy this high protein chicken Parmesan! Fueled by crickets, powered by Gryllies


Yields: 4 servings 




4 chicken breast cutlets

2 eggs

1 cup breadcrumbs 

1 cup all purpose flour

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)

1 cup Gryllies Savoury Tomato Sauce

Salt and pepper to taste

    5. Dredge each chicken cutlet through the flour, then eggs, then breadcrumbs until completely coated. 
    6. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat until shimmering
    7. Lower the heat to medium and gently fry each cutlet until they are golden brown on each side, about 3-4 minutes per side.

    9. Bake in the oven at 400°F for 10-15 minutes, or until the mozzarella begins to brown.
