Chicken Parmesan

Here's an oldie I pulled off of my long neglected website. I LOVE chicken parmesan! I usually make it for my friend Ericka's birthday, but she was out of town this year. I think we'll have to have a belated birthday celebration. That would also give me a chance to try out some new cupcakes too!

Chicken Parmesan


2 eggs, beaten
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or Parmesan & Romano)
1 1/2 C Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 Tbls Italian Herb seasoning
3 - 6 cloves garlic, minced
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 - 2 Tbls olive oil (or GARLIC olive oil ~ YUM)
12 ounces marinara sauce

Preheat oven to 375F
Put the chicken in a heavy plastic bag.

In a shallow dish or bowl (I like to use a pie plate), mix together the grated Parmesan cheese, Italian Herb Seasoning and bread crumbs.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat add minced garlic brown lightly. Add coated chicken and sauté for about 8 to 10 minutes each side, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.

Pour some of the marinara sauce into a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish.

Add chicken breasts.

Pour the rest of the marinar sauce over chicken.

Then cover each breast with shredded mozzarella/provolone cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.

Serve with angel hair pasta, a nice garden salad and garlic bread!
