This Chicken Parmesan dish is one of my favorite things to make. Growing up breaded chicken was one of my favorite things to eat, so my mom taught me how to make it. I started with those basic instructions and just went from there to create this. I’m sure there are tons of complicated recipes out there but I like to keep things simple. I want people to know that they can actually make this without hours of frustration in the kitchen.
Prep Time: Approx. 10 Minutes
Cook Time: Approx. 30 Minutes
4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 - 1 lb Box of Spaghetti or Other Pasta
2 - 24 oz Jars of your Favorite Spaghetti Sauce
Approx. 3 cups of Italian Breading
2 Cups of Flour
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Fresh Basil, Chopped (Optional)
Approx. 1-2 Tablespoons Grated Parmesan Cheese
¾ Cup Grated Mozzarella Cheese
Directions: Preheat oven to 425 F. Get out a large pot and boil water for the Spaghetti. Pour the two tablespoons of olive oil into a large frying pan and set aside. Crack the two eggs into a bowl and beat. Pour the flower and breading on to two separate large plates. Dip the chicken into the flour, then the egg, then coat in the Italian breading. Once finished, place the four chicken breasts into the oiled frying pan and brown on medium heat for approx. 4-5 minutes on each side.
Once the water comes to a boil, add the spaghetti and cook based off the instructions on your spaghetti package (times may vary). Pour the 2 jars of sauce into a small pan and heat on low.
Once the chicken is ready, place the breasts onto a baking pan. Spoon some of the sauce onto the chicken. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and top with mozzarella cheese. Then bake for approximately 15-18 minutes.
Once ready, top your spaghetti with some sauce & serve with the chicken. Sprinkle your chicken & pasta with fresh basil, and enjoy! To kick it up a notch, serve with fresh garlic bread (yum).
