Chicken Parmesan

February 18, 2011

This dish is a great entree alongside pasta or served sandwich-style with your favorite crusty bread. It’s all sorts of goodness. It’s also quick to pull together, and then you pop it into the oven until everything is bubbly and deliciously cooked through from chicken to sauce.

You need:

  • 1 lb chicken breasts (roughly 4)
  • Italian dressing/marinade
  • 2 c bread crumbs
  • 1/2 c Parmesan, grated
  • 2 T dried basil
  • 1 T garlic powder
  • 1/4 t crushed red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 3 T margarine
  • Tomato sauce
  • Mozarella, fresh or shredded

Then you…

  1. Marinate the chicken in the dressing for at least a half hour.
  2. In a flat dish, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan, basil, garlic, red pepper, salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350. Lightly spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick spray.
  4. Heat the oil and melt the margarine in a large non-stick skillet.
  5. Dredge the chicken in the bread crumb mixture. Fry until both sides are browned, roughly 2 minutes per side.
  6. Place chicken in the prepared dish. Top with your favorite tomato sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella.
  7. Bake 40 minutes and serve hot!
