The Recipe Box: Chicken Parmesan

recipeboxThis is a nice recipe to make. It looks fancy and difficult to make, but it’s really easy. I do mine differently than most recipes, because I have to watch for my husband’s diet. None the less, it will still turn out wonderful. This recipe is for two. I use as many home-made ingredients as I can. The sauce in these pictures was made with tomatoes, green peppers, onions and herbs from our garden.

Ingredients:

2 chicken breasts

3 teaspoons grated parmesan cheese

½ cup mozzarella cheese

1 cup Italian bread crumbs*

4 cups of spaghetti sauce

*Italian bread crumbs is just herbs and parmesan cheese mixed with the crumbs.IMG_20150218_181024

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. For even cooking, you should flatten the chicken as best as possible. Use a mallet or rolling pin to flatten. Bread chicken and place on cooking rack. For a good coating of crumbs, dip the chicken in an egg wash and then in the crumbs.

3. Put chicken in the oven and cook for 30 minutes.

4. Mix parmesan cheese and mozzeralla. I do this with my fingers to make sure it’s mixed good.

5. After 30 minutes, take the chicken out and spread sauce on top. Spread the cheese evenly on top and pop it back into the over for another 15 minutes.

6. Prepare spaghetti (or other side dish)

When the chicken is done, put some spaghetti on the plate, top with sauce and place a chicken on top. Serve.
