Chicken Parmesan

From Great American Recipes Easy Everyday Cooking.


1 egg
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 1/2 cups prepared pasta sauce with mushrooms
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, plus extra to garnish
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan Cheese

Easy Step - by - Step

1. Place the egg in a shallow bowl and beat lightly.  Spread the bread crumbs on a plate.  Dip each chicken breast in the beaten egg, then in the bread crumbs to coat.

2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the breaded chicken and fry until browned, about 3 minutes on each side.

3.  Spoon the pasta sauce over the chicken.  Cover and reduce heat to low.  Cook for 10 minutes.

4. Sprinkle the chicken with mozzarella, parsley and Parmesan.  Cook until the mozzarella is melted and the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes longer.  Garnish with remaining parsley and serve hot.


Serving suggestion from the author:

Garlic bread and a mixed green salad go perfect with this quick chicken dish.  Or you can use pasta like Penne and cook according to package directions.  Drain and toss with olive oil or pasta sauce.
