Popcorn Crusted Chicken Parmesan

2 bags microwavable pop corn,
   popped
1 tablespoon rosemary
2 teaspoons garlic salt
½ cup Parmesan cheese,
   grated
2 eggs
1 tablespoon water
2 pounds boneless chicken (I
   prefer thighs)
2 cups marinara sauce
2 cups mozzarella cheese
½ cup Parmesan cheese,
   grated


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Add popcorn, rosemary, garlic and ½ cup Parmesan cheese to food processor. Process until it resembles course crumbs. Pour into shallow dish.
  • In a separate shallow dish, whisk together eggs and water.
  • Coat chicken in egg wash and then popcorn mixture. Place in single layer of greased baking pan.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Top with marinara, mozzarella and ½ cup Parmesan cheese and return to oven for another 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly crusty.
