Pound chicken until ⅓-inch thick. Season with salt and pepper.
Dip the chicken in the beaten eggs, then roll in breadcrumbs.
Heat oil in a large oven-safe skillet. Brown chicken on all sides. Remove and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Discard excess oil from pan, leaving about 1 tablespoon of oil in the skillet.
Sauté chopped onion and garlic until onions are slightly translucent.
Stir in tomato sauce, drop in a sprig of basil and bring to simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the basil.
Place chicken in the sauce. Sprinkle the Parmesan over the chicken and place a round of mozzarella on top of each chicken breast.
Transfer to oven and bake at 350°F for 15 minutes, or until cheese has melted and browned.
Serve with linguine, and garnish with parsley.
