Last night my Grandparents came over for dinner. We like to get together once a month to eat, and play games or watch a movie. Last night we hosted the monthly dinner at our apartment and I decided to make Chicken Parmesan one of my favorite meals. Here is the recipe if you're in the mood for something quick, easy and delicious!
|The recipe calls for one egg slightly beaten but I used two (because I was making more chicken then the recipe called for) and I beat the heck out of them. I don't think it matters either way.|
|You'll need butter. Lots of butter. In my case I used an entire stick. This is what you fry your chicken in. I used two tablespoons at a time and melted the butter in the pan under medium heat.|
|While your chicken is baking fill the pan with a cup of spaghetti sauce (I used two). Cover it and let it simmer for ten minutes.|
|Next you're going to sprinkle the sauce with parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, and fresh parsley (If you have it.) Cover and let it simmer for five minutes.|
|The chicken is finished after a few minutes in the oven and it's ready for the sauce!|
4 boneless, skinless, chicken breast halves (I used chicken tenderloins)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 c. seasoned bread crumbs
2 T. butter 1
1 c. spaghetti sauce
1/2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 T. Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 c. fresh parsley, chopped
Using a mallet flatten chicken to an even thickness. Dip chicken into egg then into crumbs to coat. In skillet over medium heat, in hot butter, brown chicken on both sides. ( After I browned the chicken they were not done yet...so I put them into the oven for a few minutes). While the chicken is baking add spaghetti sauce into the pan. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cheeses and parsley. Cover and simmer 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
