Cheesy Chicken Parmigiana Recipe

Cheesy Chicken Parmigiana Recipe

FOR YEARS my husband ordered Chicken Parmigiana at restaurants. Then I found this recipe in our local newspaper, adjusted it for two and began making this at home. After 50 years of marriage, I still enjoy making his favorite recipes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 2. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, lightly beat the egg. In another shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Dip chicken in egg, then coat with crumb mixture.
  • 3. In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 170°. Top with mozzarella cheese. Cover and cook 3-4 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Serve with tomato sauce. Yield: 2 servings.
