One Skillet Chicken Parmesan

So the women in my family are very opinionated, and we tend to get what we want. Restaurants, family outings, vacations…they’re all usually picked by my mom and me. I mean, I can’t help it that we have good taste for one, or that my dad and brother hardly bother to speak up (err, yell) overtop of us to get their opinions known. Since I’ve moved home, I’ve been cooking a lot of trendy, but sometimes crazy and out there things, and my dad just so happens to be a meat and potatoes kind of guy.?

As much as I joke around, out of everyone in my family my dad is absolutely the most selfless. He washes all the dishes after my mom and I are done cooking, and he rubs my mom’s feet every night. He puts up with our crazy antics and lets us take over the TV…you get the picture. One of the things he really loves in life besides making us happy though is Chicken Parmesan. So, being the good daughter that I am, I decided to give him a break and do a spin on one of his favourites, and this One Skillet Chicken Parmesan was born.?

Lately because of school and commuting, I’ve only really had minimal time to think of meal planning. I need the fastest possible meal with the least possible mess for dinner. And preferably this ideal meal will include leftovers. I think this easy skillet dish pretty much checks off all those things on my list. Chicken, mushrooms, orzo, tomato sauce, done.✔️

Just look at this big pot of deliciousness right here. I lightly breaded the chicken in this recipe and as long as you follow my recipe, it will all stay in tact and become absolutely amazing and tender from cooking in the tomato sauce for 25 minutes. I seriously can’t even tell you how much I love this recipe.

Instructions
  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Meanwhile, coat each chicken breast in egg, then in flour, then in breadcrumbs. Sprinkle with salt & pepper, then place in skillet and fry for about 3-4 minutes per side.
  2. When breading becomes a bit more solid, continue to fry chicken in the middle of the pan and add garlic and mushrooms around, sautéing for about 5 min.
  3. Add water, tomato sauce and orzo, then bring to a boil. Lower heat to low-medium, then cover skillet with well-fitting lid and let simmer for about 12-15 min, checking and stirring often until orzo and chicken is completely cooked through.
  4. Remove lid and add cheese to the tops of each chicken breast. Stir in spinach and cover with lid again, cooking for another 2 minutes.
  5. One serving is about 1/2 a chicken breast and 1 cup of the orzo/mushroom/spinach mixture, and reheats fairly well on the stovetop.
  6. Enjoy!
