Super Simple Parmesan Chicken

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!pc1

  • 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
