Italian food is a staple around this house. Anything that even remotley resembles Italian is a “yes” in our book. I will admit that I was scared to cook any sort of “Chicken Parmesean” type of dish because everywhere I have had it, it was so good. I was scared to mess it up. This recipe was easy and we managed to not mess it up, so add it to the list of keepers. It doesn’t hurt that it was yummy too!
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 t garlic salt
- 4 T oil
- 2 boneless chicken breasts, pounded
- 1/2 jar pasta sauce
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
Pound your chicken breasts until they are about 1/4 – 1/2 an inch thick. Heat oven to 350.
In a bowl, mix breadcrumbs, parmesan, and garlic salt. Coat the chicken pieces in this mixture.
Heat the oil in a skillet and add the chicken and brown until it is done (about 4 minutes on each side).
Place chicken on the bottom of a sprayed baking dish. Pour the pasta sauce over your chicken, then cover the pan with foil and bake the dish for about 15 minutes.
Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese and return to the oven, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
