Bring up the topic of chicken parmesan in New Jersey, and it's likely to get loud quickly.

Everyone has their favorite go-to restaurant; they swear they have the best chicken parm.  I did some research and scoured New Jersey for the best chicken parm.

I also looked for your reviews online, and after careful consideration, I came up with this list.  If you think I overlooked anyone, tell me about it.  I have a feeling, we'll be doing a follow-up in the future.

Chef Vola's 111 Albion Place, Atlantic City

This place is legendary for its tasty dishes, huge portions, and outstanding service.  The prices are on the high-end, and well worth it.  One complaint is that it's difficult to get a reservation.  Well worth the visit.

Spano's 719 Arnold Avenue, Point Pleasant Beach

Visitors to Spano's are likely to be greeted by the friendly owner/chef.  The chicken parm is made to near perfection.  Lightly breaded chicken in a tasty marinara sauce is sure to please.

Jimmy's Italian Restaurant  1405 Asbury Ave Asbury Park

Jimmy's in Asbury Park is a throwback of sorts.  The atmosphere is very homey and brings back memories of the Italian restaurants my parents would take us to.  The chicken parm is quite succulent.  The seasoning is just right and the sauce is quite good.

Little Italy 815 Tilton Roan, Northfield

Located in Northfield, Little Italy offers a tasty chicken parm that's fried to a crisp golden brown, the breading is lite and does not overpower.  Topped with mozzarella and a nice light sauce makes this a must-try.  A nice alternative minutes from Atlantic City.

Federici's Family Restaurant 14 East Main Street, Freehold

I'm a big fan of this restaurant.  This family-owned restaurant has a 100-year history with a well-earned reputation for great Italian specialties and outstanding service.  Their chicken parm is an outstanding choice for those looking for real Italian.
