Chicken parmigiana is a breaded chicken breast with tomato sauce and mozzarella, parmesan, and provolone cheese. Sometimes, a slice of ham or bacon will be added. It is also known as a chicken parm colloquially in the United States and as a parma, parmi, or parmy in Australia.
Chicken Parmesan started back in Campania and Sicily in Italy. You can deep fry the eggplant, then add the sauce from cheese and tomato. Bake it then, and enjoy it.
Cooks in North America and other parts of the world with large Italian immigrant populations realized at some points that chicken would be an excellent alternative to the eggplant, and Chicken Parmigiana was born.
