Southern Style Chicken Parma

Posted by on November 20, 2011

Not sure where the inspiration for this came from… Was probably from @tifdownunder picking on @parmadaze about eating too much parma… And her being American.. and somehow the idea of doing a souther style chicken parma grew in my head… Yeah I’m weird like that….




  • About 500g of Chicken, I used Thighs.. I know… Not exactly a parma cut but oh so tasty
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1tsp of oregano
  • 1 tbs garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbs of Thyme
  • 1 tbs of ground ginger
  • 1/2 tbs of basil
  • 1 tbs of Celery salt
  • 1 tbs of black pepper
  • 1 tbs of dry mustard
  • 4 tbs of paprika
  • Cornflake crumbs
  • Ham slices
  • Bertoli Parma Sauce
  • Grated Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 cups of milk



  1. Preheat oven to 180c
  2. Grease an oven proof dish
  3. In a bowl, combine all the herb’s and spices
  4. In a second bowl place a good wack of the cornflake crumbs
  5. In a third bowl beat the egg then mix in the milk.
  6. Place the chicken in the egg mixture and ensure it is well soaked
  7. Then dip it in the crumbs, then again in to the spices ensuring that it is well covered.
  8. Place chicken in greased oven tray.
  9. Repeat until all the chicken is done.
  10. Cover the grease proof dish with foil and bake for about 30 min, remove the foil, and then for a further 20-30 minutes.
  11. Fire up the grill.
  12. Take chicken and place on a plate that can go in the grill, cover with ham, parma sauce and cheese and grill until cheese has browned.


Serve with a good IPA :)

Cooking times vary depending on the chicken you use. Thighs are much thinner then breast so obviously cook quicker. The bertoli parma sauce actually had a decent flavour for a jar based pasta/simmer sauce.  And I do love the flavour/texture of the cornflake crumbs over standard breadcrumbs, no reason you can used whatever sauce or crumbs you like :D

The original recipe I stole the dry mix from also called for MSG, I couldnt find any at my local supermarket and I’m not sure I care, or that it needs it. But if you want to add it, its 2tbs of MSG.
