Herb Marinated Chicken Parmesan

Cook Time30 mins
Servings: 4


  • Marinade:
  • 4-5 boneless skinless chicken thighs trimmed of extra fat
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp fresh basil finely chopped
  • 2 tsp fresh Italian parsley finely chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves finely chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh oregano leaves finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic smashed
  • Remaining Ingredients:
  • Marinara sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese shredded
  • Parmesan cheese shredded
  • Fresh parsley chopped


  • Combine the olive oil, red wine vinegar, chopped herbs, smashed garlic cloves, and pinch of crushed red pepper flakes together in a ziplock bag. Mix until well combined. Add the trimmed chicken thighs to the bag then seal and refrigerator for 5-6 hours. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator 20 minutes prior to cooking.
  • Coat an oven proof pan over medium high heat with cooking spray. Season both sides of the chicken with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Place the chicken thighs into the HOT pan for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip the chicken over then spoon some marinara over the top. Sprinkle a bit of mozzarella and parmesan on top of the marinara then cover with tin foil and place into the oven for 20 minutes. Remove the tin foil then continue cooking for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the chicken is cooked through. Place onto a serving tray, sprinkle the top with fresh chopped parsley, and serve immediately. Enjoy.
