This recipe has everything we want in a weeknight meal: 5 key ingredients, a big ol’ serving of veggies, pasta, cheese, and protein, and the prep time is under 10 minutes. If you’ve ever made chicken parm at home before you know it can be a ton of work and use almost every dish in your kitchen. In this recipe we’re not dicing, breading, frying or splattering your ceiling with anything. Weeknights deserve to be simple and tasty and Suvie’s chicken parm is exactly that. Kids love this recipe and you’ll love the minimal prep and clean up for an easy, cheesy dinner for four.
Note: If you’re feeling like switching it up, you can replace the pasta with sub rolls and turn this chicken parm into a delicious sandwich.
My Cook: Chicken Parm
- 1 lb chicken breast
- 8 oz. tagliatelle nests, pappardelle or linguine broken in half
- 10 oz. zucchini cut into half-moon shape
- 24 oz. jar of marinara sauce
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella
- Olive oil to taste
- Salt and pepper to taste
Salt and pepper chicken breast then vacuum seal (here’s our DIY vacuum sealing guide). Place the chicken in a Suvie pan and load into upper right cooking zone. Cover with water.
Place sliced zucchini in another Suvie pan and toss with 1 tsp salt (this will draw out the water in the zucchini during the cook). Load into the upper left cooking zone.
Put pasta in the starch pan and load into Suvie.
Fill the reservoir, enter My Cook settings and cook now or schedule.

After the cook, remove the chicken breast from Suvie pan, pat pan and chicken dry, and return chicken to pan.
Pour ½ of marinara over the chicken breast then top with mozzarella. Return to Suvie.
Drain excess water from the zucchini pan. Pat dry, season with olive oil and pepper to taste. Return to Suvie. Broil zucchini and chicken for 10 minutes, checking halfway through the broil to see if the pans need to be rotated.
During the broil, toss the remaining marinara with the pasta in a large bowl until evenly coated.
After the broil, remove the chicken and zucchini from Suvie.
To serve, divide pasta between four plates, top with a chicken breast and extra sauce. Serve zucchini alongside pasta. Enjoy!
Chicken breast is often best served with white wines, but the combination of breadcrumbs, mozzarella, and rich marinara sauce demands something a little more robust. We recommend serving this meal with a juicy glass of Italian Barbera.
