Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and golden.
Add tomatoes and juices, oregano, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened. Taste and adjust salt and pepper as needed.
Remove from the heat and puree in a blender. Return the sauce to the pan.
Make dipping stations by adding flour to a plate or shallow dish. Whisk the eggs in another shallow dish. Combine breadcrumbs, parsley, and oregano in a third shallow dish.
Place each chicken cutlet between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet until they are an even thickness between ¼- and ½-inch. Season both sides of each chicken piece with 1 teaspoon of salt and black pepper, then dip in the egg mixture.
Dredge the chicken in flour, shaking off any excess.
Dip in the egg mixture, letting any excess drip off.
Dredge in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing so it evenly coats both sides. Repeat with each piece of chicken.
Heat vegetable oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add the breaded chicken and cook for 4-6 minutes, flipping halfway, until golden brown.
Transfer the chicken to a baking sheet with a wire rack, and lightly season with salt.
Top each piece of chicken with ½ cup of the tomato sauce.
Add 2 slices of mozzarella and sprinkle with more parmesan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes until the cheese is melted, bubbling, and lightly browned in spots.
Cook the pasta and combine with the tomato sauce and ½ cup of the pasta water. Toss to evenly coat the pasta, adding more pasta water if needed.
Top the pasta with the chicken then sprinkle with parmesan and basil. Serve immediately.
I typically serve chicken parmesan with pasta since it is my favorite. However, it can be served on its own with a salad or steamed vegetables.
Chicken parm is one of the ultimate comfort dishes. What's not to love about a crunchy breaded chicken cutlet topped with wonderfully seasoned marinara sauce and bubbling melted mozzarella?
