4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
salt and pepper
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
more parmesan cheese, for sprinkling on top
4 ounces sliced mozzarella cheese (if you can get it, the soft fresh kind is best, it melts sooooo creamy)
your favorite marinara sauce or store bought spaghetti sauce
1 Pound the chicken breasts between two slices of plastic wrap until about 1/4″ thick.
2 Season with salt and pepper.
3 Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess.
4 Dip in egg/milk mixture, then in breadcrumb/Parmesan mixture.
5 Heat the butter and olive oil in a large deep skillet.
6 Brown the chicken breasts over medium heat until golden on each side (about 2-3 min per side).
7 Remove to a plate and keep warm.
8 Add the marinara sauce to the skillet.
9 Heat to boiling and simmer 10 minutes.
10 Add the chicken breasts to the sauce and sprinkle Parmesan over them.
11 Place a slice of mozzarella on each piece of chicken.
12 Cover and simmer about 8- 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the chicken is tender.
13 Serve with your favorite pasta- we like linguine.
