Parmigiana is a classic Italian eggplant dish. It’s simple, lightly-breaded, and literally means “in the style of Parma.” Chicken Parm is an American invention—a cutlet with thick breading, deep fried and tucked under a blanket of cheese. This recipe is not autentico Italian, nor is it truly American. It’s a juicy chicken patty with a light tapioca coating that’s quickly browned on the stovetop and then lovingly cloaked in basil-infused marinara sauce. Mange!
