2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the onion

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups]; set aside half for the tomato sauce.
In a large bowl, stir together the house dressing and half the sliced onion. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Cook the tomato sauce

In a medium sauce pot over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the remaining sliced onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion starts to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomato sauce base and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
While the tomato sauce simmers, start preparing the chicken.


Prep and brown the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
  • On separate plates or shallow bowls, season the flour and Parmesan panko with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
  • Crack the egg into a shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper. With a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended.
Working with 1 chicken breast at a time, dredge the chicken in the flour, turning to coat; shake off any excess. Dip the chicken into the egg; let the excess drip off, then gently press the chicken into the Parmesan panko, coating all sides.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until golden brown but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.


Assemble and bake the chicken Parmesan

In a medium [large] baking dish, spread the tomato sauce in an even layer. Place the chicken on top and sprinkle with the Italian cheese blend. Bake until the chicken is cooked through and the tomato sauce is bubbling, 10 to 12 minutes.
When the chicken is almost done, prepare the basil and the salad.


Prep the basil; assemble the salad

  • Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
To the bowl with the onion and house dressing, add the kale and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the chicken Parmesan to individual plates and garnish with the basil. Serve the salad on the side.
