Chicken Parmesan recipe

A friend of mine made this dish one time when we went to their home for dinner. It was delicious, and she generously gave me the recipe! It is one of my favorite recipes, but I don't make it too often. It is a little bit of work, but worth it-- so it was perfect for our stay-at-home Valentines dinner this past Tuesday! The pictures don't do it justice, it honestly is SOOO tasty!

This is a recipe that you can adjust for however many people you are serving. We made 5 chicken breasts, four of them were smaller. There are not amounts, since you can adjust it. If I were serving adults, I would have one larger chicken breast for each.

Here is the "recipe"...
Chicken- Tenders or Breasts
Eggs, beaten (we used 2-3)
Italian style breadcrumbs
Olive oil
Spaghetti Sauce (we use Prego Roasted Garlic & Parmesan)
Shredded Mozzerella
Grated Parmesan (from the can)
Before cooking in the oven...
Directions:
Place eggs in one pie plate, and breadcrumbs in another. Dip chicken in egg, then in crumbs. Pan sear it in olive oil- about 1/4" in the bottom of a pan. Keep temp not too high- med high at most, til it sizzles. Bake a few minutes on each side until golden brown.

Lay the chicken in a prepared pan or dish, with a layer of spaghetti sauce first. Drizzle the olive oil from the pan into the dish. Spread grated mozzarella, then more spaghetti sauce, then sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Note: We did this for 4-6 breasts, and we poked the chicken breast that was the largest with our meat thermometer. It was not quite done, so we put it back in a few more minutes. Be sure to check the doneness of your chicken. There's nothing like too-pink chicken to spoil a meal!

We served the Chicken Parmesan over pasta, and had roasted asparagus (find recipe here) instead of a salad. We also had crunchy bread to complete the meal. The kids were excited that we broke out the sparkling cider!

Flavors all mingled, melty cheese=YUM!!
