What is a Parmo?

The Parmo, is a breaded cutlet dish originating in Middlesbrough and a popular item of take-away food in the North East of England. Similar to a schnitzel, it consists of chicken in breadcrumbs topped with a white béchamel/Parmesan sauce and cheese; there are many variations, including non-chicken cutlets. The Parmo is distinct from the Italian-American dish chicken parmigiana, a briefly pan-fried then baked or broiled cutlet served with a tomato-based sauce.
