Before starting, preheat your broiler to high. Wash and dry all produce. Core, then cut pepper into 1/4-inch slices. Peel, then cut half the onion (whole onion for 4 ppl) into 1/4-inch slices. Add panko to a shallow dish. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Carefully slice into the centre of each chicken breast, parallel to the cutting board, leaving 1/2-inch intact on the other end. Open up chicken like a book. Season both sides with salt, pepper and half the Italian Seasoning. Coat each breast all over with mayo. Working with one breast at a time, press into panko to coat completely.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then chicken. Pan-fry until golden-brown, 3-4 min per side. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, pan-fry chicken in batches, using 1 tbsp oil per batch.) Transfer chicken to a foil-lined baking sheet. Carefully wipe pan clean.
Spoon marinara sauce over chicken, then sprinkle with Parmesan. Broil in the middle of the oven until cheese is golden-brown and chicken is cooked through, 4-6 min.
While chicken broils, heat the same pan (from step 2) over medium-high. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions and remaining Italian Seasoning. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 3-4 min. Transfer to a plate to cool slightly.
While onions cook, whisk together Dijon, vinegar, 1/2 tsp sugar and 1 tbsp oil (dbl both for 4 ppl) in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
Add spinach, peppers and onions to the bowl with dressing. Toss to combine. Divide chicken parmigiana and salad between plates.
