Chicken Parmigiana for 2

These tender crumb-coated chicken breasts are topped with a savory homemade spaghetti sauce and served over pasta. "You can adjust the seasonings in this dish to your taste. My husband and I like lots of garlic, onion and herbs in everything," writes Heather Powers Sauter of Silver Spring, Maryland.

    Everyone liked it. Next time I will pound the chicken flat because they took too long to cook through.

    I followed recipe with one smalll change. Take grape tomatoes, halve them, mix with 1tsp olive oil, 1tsp good quality balsamic vinegar, lay them on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet and roast at 350 for 25 minutes. Serve them on top of the chicken.

    This is really good! I've made it many times. The sauce is great, and we serve it over angel hair pasta. Wonderful!
