Chicken Parmesan





Ingredients:
4 chicken breasts
2 eggs - beaten
salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
1/2 cup Italian style bread crumbs
1 tbsp olive oil
Cooking spray
1/2 cup low fat shredded mozzarella cheese
3 tbsp shredded or grated Parmesan cheese (I use shredded)
Dried basil
2 cups Spaghetti sauce (homemade or store bought)
Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Trim chicken breasts of all fat. Cut each breast into two pieces. Heat large pan on medium heat; coat the pan with cooking spray and olive oil. Add seasonings to beaten egg and mix. Dip chicken into eggs and then into bread crumbs. Add to pan & cook 3-4 minutes on each side. Make sure to spray the pan with cooking spray when you turn the chicken over. In large baking dish add 1 cup of spaghetti sauce and spread evenly over the bottom of the dish. Add chicken and top each piece with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle the mozzarella evenly over the chicken, top with Parmesan and basil. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes. Enjoy!
The Results:
This was really good. I'm so glad that I've been able to test out some of Pam's recipes from For the Love of Cooking. Everything has been fantastic and I'm sure I will be back for more recipes from her food blog. I served this with Whole Wheat Spaghetti and garlic toast. YUM!

That looks great, Nicole. I agree with you, Pam does have some very tempting recipes on her site. I tried her Portobello Burgers recently, they were fab.
