Chicken Parmesan

4 small or 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 c. Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs

1 T. olive oil

1 qt. Marinara Sauce

1 c. Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

1/4 c. Parmesan Cheese

 

If using large breasts, cut into half, diagonally, creating 4 pieces of equal portions.  Place chicken breast meat, 1 at a time, into a plastic bag or between 2 sheets of plastic wrap.  Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, pound meat to 1/4" thickness.

 

Combine breadcrumbs in a sealable plastic bag.  Add chicken pieces and shake until coated.

 

Heat oil in a sauté pan and brown breaded chicken pieces on both sides.  Cover bottom of an 8x8 pan with a small amount of Marinara.  Place browned chicken atop the sauce and cover with 1 c. sauce.  Top each piece of chicken with 1/4 c. shredded mozzarella cheese.  Sprinkle parmesan cheese over all. 

 

Bake at 350* until sauce is bubbly and cheese is melted and starting to brown, about 20 minutes.

 

Serve over cooked pasta tossed with remaining Marinara Sauce.
