Chicken parmesan pizza style is a giant golden fried chicken patty topped with tomato sauce and cheese. Drizzled with spicy hot honey, this version of chicken parm will have you wishing you made more.


Units Scale

1 lb ground chicken

3 T Parmesan cheese

1 t salt

1 t Marjoram or Oregano (Marjoram has a slightly lighter taste)

1 t garlic powder

1/2 t fresh ground black pepper

1/2 c Marinara Sauce (I used Trader Joes’ arrabiata sauce or I like Rao’s)

3 T fresh grated Parmesan cheese

6 ounces Fresh Mozzarella sliced

Olive Oil for frying (about 1/2″ in bottom of skillet)

Fresh Basil and tomatoes for garnish and extra sauce and Parmesan if you want

Breading and Egg Wash

1/4 c flour seasoned with oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper

2 T parmesan cheese

1 egg beaten and mixed with 1 T of water

1/2 c panko crumbs

Spicy Hot Honey

1/2 c honey – you will probably have some leftover to drizzle on other things

12 t spicy chili paste


Line 2 8″ cake or pie pans with plastic wrap.

Mix together ground chicken with seasonings. To test for seasonings, take about 1 t of the mixture and place in microwave or 20 seconds. Feel free to adjust seasonings if needed. Now divide chicken in half and pat each half into prepared pan. Freeze for about 4 hours. It does not need to be solid, but almost!

Prepare egg wash and breading. Remove chicken and dust with flour on top, bottom and sides. Brush well with egg wash on top, sides and bottom. Cover on all sides with panko crumbs.

Heat oil in pan until shimmering. Add chicken patties to oil. (I did mine one at a time.) Fry until golden about 5 minutes on each side. Remove and drain.

Preheat oven to 400. While oven is preheating cover each chicken patty with 1/4 c of marinara or to your discretion. I think it is better to add more sauce later. If you add too much now your patty will be soggy. Cover with parmesan. Then cover that with mozzarella.

Place on a baking sheet in oven and bake for about 10 minutes. Cheese should be melted, if not bake a few minutes longer. Remove from oven,

Heat broiler to high. Slide baking sheet under broiler and broil for just a few minutes until cheese is golden and glistening. Garnish with basil and tomatoes. Serve with a pizza cutter.

Mix up the honey. Drizzle on top or serve on the side.

Feel free to serve over pasta or arugula or both!


Keep a few patties in the freezer for when you want to make this!

Use a 7 to 9″ pie pan lined with plastic wrap to make the chicken patties. 1 lb of ground chicken makes two patties this size. A springform pan can also be used.
