New to Italian cooking? This is the perfect dish to get you started: chicken, batter, sauce, cheese — everybody’s happy. Whether you call it sugo, ragu or marinara, simple Italian-style tomato sauce ensures moisture, panko gives it some crunch and two kinds of cheese make it that rich and creamy element that make it a mainstay on Italian menus worldwide.

Serve with steamed vegetables and either a tossed green salad or Caesar.

Don’t forget crusty Italian bread, sopping is a must.
