Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain, cover, and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 450º Fahrenheit.
Cut 6 thin slices of mozzarella cheese. Grate the remaining mozzarella. Set aside.Grate 1 cup of parmesan cheese. ½ cup for the breading and ½ cup to sprinkle on top of the marinara sauce.
Prepare two shallow dishes. The first dish is for the eggs. Use a fork or whisk to lightly beat the eggs. In the second dish combine ½ cup of parmesan and 1 cup panko breadcrumbs.
Breading The Chicken
Butterfly the chicken. Cover with plastic foil and pound with a meat tenderizer (or a rolling pin) until the slices are thin and tender. Season each side with salt and pepper.
Dip each slice of chicken into the egg wash. Make sure the chicken is fully coated. Transfer the chicken into the bowl with the parmesan breadcrumb mixture and coat well.
Frying The Chicken
Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Once hot transfer the chicken into the frying pan. Cook until golden brown on both sides. About 3-5 minutes per side.
Assembling the Casserole
Use 2-3 tablespoons of marinara sauce and spread across a 9x13 inch casserole dish.
Transfer fried chicken into the casserole dish and coat it with the remaining marinara sauce. Top with mozzarella slices. Sprinkle with the remaining grated mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.
Baking The Chicken Parmesan
Bake the chicken for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Serve Chicken Parmesan over pasta. Enjoy.
OPTIONAL: If your oven has a broiling function, turn the broiler on high. After the cheese has already melted, place the casserole under the broiler for about two minutes. This will result in a nicely golden-brown cheesy top.
