Chicken Parmesan


Chicken Parmesan

This is my quick and easy version of chicken Parmesan.  I hate having to pound out the chicken breast so instead I cut them into three pieces.  First remove the tender and part of the breast together.  Then simply slice the breast in half and you will end up with a good thickness for chicken Parmesan.

Ingredients:

2          Chicken breast, boneless, skinless trimmed as stated above

Salt and pepper

1 cup   Italian bread crumbs

¼ cup  Parmesan cheese shredded

1 tbsp. Herbs, dried (your favorite)

2          Eggs beaten

Oil, enough to fill the bottom of your skillet

Pasta sauce

½ cup Mozzarella shredded cheese

Directions:

Season the chicken breast on both sides with salt and pepper.  Add the dried herbs and shredded cheese to the bread crumbs and mix well.  Dip the chicken into the egg, shaking off excess, then place in the bread crumbs coating the chicken well on both sides.  Complete this for all the chicken pieces and place all the chicken on a plate.  Heat the oil in a large skillet.  Cook the chicken until each side is browned.  Remove the chicken to a baking sheet.  Preheat the oven to 350.  Cover each piece of chicken with a thin layer of sauce and top with the shredded cheese.  Bake until the cheese is melted.  Serve with your favorite pasta.
