Cooking time




  • 2 2 large chicken breasts, slice the chicken in half horizontally to create 4 pieces of chicken. This will help the chicken cook faster and more evenly

  • 1 tbsp 1 zesty Italian seasoning mix (or you can use normal Italian seasoning with a dash of salt and pepper)

  • 2 2 eggs

  • 1 cup 1 Italian style panko breadcrumbs

  • 2 tbsp 2 melted butter

  • 2 2 zucchini, sliced

  • 2 2 yellow squash, sliced

  • 1 tbsp 1 olive oil

  • 1/2 tbsp 1/2 salt

  • 1 tsp 1 pepper

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 marinara sauce or pasta sauce

  • 1 cup 1 mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
    Line a large sheet pan with foil or parchment paper
  • Coat the chicken: Season the chicken on each side with the zesty Italian seasoning mix. To a bowl (that’s big enough for the chicken to fit in) add the eggs and beat them up. Into another bowl add the panko breadcrumbs and melted butter stir to coat the breadcrumbs in the butter. Dip each piece of chicken in the egg mixture on each side then coat in the panko mixture : press the panko mixture on to the chicken so it gets coated well then place onto the sheet pan. Repeat for all of the chicken. Push all of the chicken onto one side of the sheet pan (try to make sure the chicken isn’t touching) on the other side of the sheet pan add the zucchini, squash, oil, salt, and pepper stir to coat the vegetables in the oil and seasonings.
  • Bake for 12 minutes then flip the chicken over. Bake for another 12 minutes then turn the broil on and broil for 2 minutes. Remove from the oven and flip the chicken over again and pour the marinara sauce evenly on the top of each piece of chicken then sprinkle the top of the chicken with the cheese. Put back in the oven and broil for 2 more minutes to melt the cheese. Enjoy!
