Chicken Parmesan with Pepperoni

  • 2 large eggs 
  • 1/4 cup milk 
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 2 cups panko (Japanese bread crumbs), finely crushed in a food processor 
  • Four 8-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, pounded 3/4 inch thick 
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper 
  • 3/4 cup canola oil 
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce 
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese 
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella 
  • 2 ounces sliced pepperoni 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

Step 1   
Preheat the oven to 450°. In a pie plate, beat the eggs with the milk. Spread the flour and panko in 2 separate pie plates. Season the chicken all over with salt and pepper and dust in the flour. Dip the chicken in the egg mixture and then in the panko; press to help the crumbs adhere.

Step 2   
In a large skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the chicken and fry over moderately high heat, turning once, until cooked through, about 7 minutes. Drain the chicken on paper towels, then transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Top the chicken with the tomato sauce, Parmigiano, mozzarella and pepperoni.

Step 3   
Bake the chicken for about 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Transfer the chicken to plates, sprinkle with the parsley and serve.
