1 1/2 c. panko bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan, plus more for garnish
2 large eggs, beaten with 1 tbsp. water
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken cutlets
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Vegetable oil
1 c. shredded mozzarella
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, sliced
1 (28-oz.) can crushed tomatoes
1/4 c. water
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Pinch crushed red pepper flakes
2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, plus more for garnish

Preheat oven to 400. Make chicken: Prepare breading station with three large mixing bowls: one bowl with panko, garlic powder, and Parmesan mixed with a fork; another with the egg mixture; and the third bowl with flour. Season chicken with salt and pepper, then coat each piece of chicken in flour and shake off excess. Dip chicken into egg mixture and then into bread crumb mixture; repeat steps for remaining chicken and set aside on a plate.
In a deep cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, add 1/4" oil. When pan is hot but not smoking, add chicken. Cook until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes, flipping halfway through. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
Meanwhile, make marinara: In a medium pot over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and garlic and cook until soft, 4 minutes. Add in tomatoes and water, season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, and let simmer, 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in parsley.
Pour sauce into a 9"-x-13" baking dish and place chicken in sauce. Top with mozzarella and bake until cheese is melty, 10 to 12 minutes. If desired, broil until cheese is golden, 3 minutes.
Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
