Well, with the temps still being WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY below zero I decided to make another nice warm comfort dish. Chicken Parmesan. This dish is so easy to get together. This is all you need to make it.
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
6 chicken breasts, trimmed of all fat (yuck)
2 large eggs, beaten
Canola or olive oil or cooking spray like Pam
Spray a baking dish with cooking spray or put a light layer of oil on the bottom. Either way works, of course the spray saves a few precious calories and it works just as well.
Mix the bread crumbs and the Parmesan cheese together in bowl.
Beat the eggs in another bowl.
Dip chicken in egg, sprinkle with salt and cracked pepper and then dip in the crumbs. Pat both sides of chicken until well covered.
Transfer to baking dish.
Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. ;-)
Bake chicken in oven set to 375 degrees until golden brown and juices run clear.
Take the chicken out of the oven. Put a line of sauce across the middle of each breast and then sprinkle mozzarella cheese on the line. You can use as little or as much of the sauce and cheese as you like. Be careful though, too much sauce makes for soggy breading, which does not go over well at our house. (That is why I do not pour sauce over the entire breast
Pop your chicken back into the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Keep an eye on it so you don't burn the coating. ------
Chicken Parmesan, pasta and a salad. That's what is for supper in Farmchick's kitchen!
Take care and keep warm!
