I have been wanting to make this for a long time. I love Chicken Parmesan at Applebee's and I found this recipe and just had to try it. It takes about 15 min to prepare and another 30 min to cook. So it is a quick and easy recipe to remind you family you are SuperMom.
You will need...
1/2 Cup Seasoned Bread Crumbs
3 Tablespoon Parmesan Cheese
4 to 6 Chicken Brests
1 Egg Braten
2 Tablespoon Margarine
1 Can Tomato Sauce
1/4 Teaspoon Dried Basil
1/8 Teaspoon Garlic
1/2 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Mix crumbs with 1 Tablespoon Parmesan in a shallow dish. Dip the chicken into beaten egg. Roll in crumbs mixture to coat.
Melt margarine in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken. Cook chicken turning only once to keep the breadcrumbs from coming off of the chicken. Cook approximately 5 min. When the chicken is golden brown place it in a lightly greased baking sheet.
Add tomato sauce, basil, and garlic powder to the skillet that you just cooked the chicken in. Simmer for about 5 min or until the sauce slightly thickens.
Now spoon the sauce over the chicken.
Sprinkle with Mozzarella and remaining Parmesan.
Bake for 30 min.
The Chicken smells great when it comes out of the oven and your family wont need much coaxing to come to the dinner table.
I served this dish with spagetti noodles and Garlic Bread. Use the leftover sauce with the noodles. My kids and husband loved it. It will be a recipe that we will make again for sure. I hope your family loves it as much as mine did. As always if you try it please let me know if you like it in the comments below.
