Parmesan Chicken

Parmesan Chicken is an Italian classic. I played around until we got it just the way we wanted. We serve it over pasta with salad, over Parmesan Crusted Cauliflower,  or on its own with a side of garlic bread & salad.


2 Chicken Breasts
1 cup Bread Crumbs
1 cup Parmesan Cheese
2 Eggs
2 T Olive Oil
2 T Water
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 Can Hunts Four Cheese Spaghetti Sauce
1-2 cups Shredded Cheese


Pound the chicken out to flat to approximately 1/2 inch thick. Mix together bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in bowl. Beat together eggs, 2 T olive oil, and water.  Cut chicken breasts in 2 or 3 portions each. Dredge each piece first in the bread crumb mixer. Start heating heavy skillet on medium high heat with 1/4 cup olive oil. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Dredge each piece of chicken in egg mixture followed by the bread mixture again. Pan fry for 3 minutes on each side. Pour 1/2 cup of sauce in the bottom of a casserole dish. Place the pan fried chicken on top of spaghetti sauce and then top with the remainder of the spaghetti sauce.  Bake for 25 minutes. Top with cheese return oven 3-5 minutes until melted.
