The Most Popular Italian Dish in the World

Stuffed Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan is one of the most popular Italian dishes around the world and especially in the United States. However it’s also one of the most generic. We have all had those over breaded, overcooked sad representations of my heritage served at restaurants and local pizzerias. I wanted to update this classic dish but still keep it familiar. Its an easy recipe that’s perfect for family style dinners any night of the week. As a good Italian boy myself I stand behind this recipe 100% Even though I didn’t make my own Marinara I Challenge you to find a better sauce than Rao’s Homemade

Sausage Stuffed Chicken Parm Porn!!

This Recipe is stuffed with fresh mozzarella cheese and Italian sausage wrapped in prosciutto.The Prosciutto does a great job holding everything together and adds tons of flavor. I dust the outside with grated Parmesan cheese and bake in the oven. Finish the recipe by topping it with a small amount of tomato sauce and provolone. The stuffing really keeps the chicken moist and tender throughout the cooking process and will impress even the pickiest Paesano. The kids seem to love this dish as much as the adults making it perfect for the whole familia. Looking for a quick side dish to go with this recipe?? try my Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus.

Low Carb Stuffed Chicken Parmesan

I served this over a cauliflower mushroom risotto and sliced the breast 2 different ways. The round slices are great because everyone can have the amount they want if your serving family style. If this is a romantic dinner for 2 I prefer to make a single diagonal cut to expose the cheesy, porky goodness.

  1. I’m making this tonight. A few notes I’ve seen; 1) you need 1.5 c of sauce if each breast gets 1/4c & there’s 6 breasts. 2) it looks like melted mozzarella/provolone cheese is on top of the chicken, not inside as stated in recipe?
    Can’t wait to make this tonight.

    1. There is actually fresh mozzarella inside the chicken and provolone on top. ill double check the recipe to make sure I have the correct ingredients listed. thanks for checking out the recipe!!


      1. The only thing with the recipe is it doesn’t talk about the cheese on top after the sauce step at the end. Also the mozzarella is listed as ounces instead of slices so I thought it was shredded (I use a recipe saver that creates my shopping list).
        It turned out good all the same. Very unique recipe! It’s great as leftovers too!

        1. Thanks for checking the recipe out I appreciate the feedback!! have a great weekend!!

  2. You forgot step 9 which i think would probably read something like this: “top chicken pieces with provolone slices and return to oven until cheese is melted”

    1. thank you so much, that’s one of my first ever blogs and it was a bit clunky. I just fixed it up so it should make more sense. thanks so much for checking out the recipe. its delicious
