  1. Cut the chicken breasts in half widthwise to make 4 thin breasts.
  2. Season the chicken with salt, pepper, and onion powder.
  3. Coat the chicken in flour, then egg, and then bread crumbs.
  4. Pour oil in a cast-iron skillet to come ¼ inch (½ cm) up the side. Heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and fry on both sides until brown, about 4 minutes.
  5. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  6. Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C).
  7. Place the fried chicken breasts in a baking dish. If they don’t fit side by side, gently overlap them. Pour the marinara over the chicken.
  8. Top with mozzarella slices and Parmesan.
  9. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is browned and bubbling.
  10. Serve with freshly chopped basil.
  11. Enjoy!
