Chicken Parmesan

My all time favorite food is Mexican (or Tex Mex to some), but I do love some good Italian food as well. My husband likes Chicken Parmesan so I set off to find a good recipe! Again, I couldn't find one recipe that I just really loved, so I changed things here and there and came up with this recipe:

2 eggs, beaten
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 cups spaghetti sauce (homemade or jarred)
1 cup mozzarella cheese (or Monterrey jack)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Put the beaten eggs in a shallow dish. In another dish, combine Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Dip chicken into bread crumbs, eggs and bread crumbs again.
3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add chicken and saute until chicken is cooked through (about 8 to 10 minutes each side).
4. Pour spaghetti sauce into a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Add chicken and top with cheese. Bake for 20 minutes until cheese is completely melted. Serve over cooked pasta.

We both really enjoyed this recipe! The chicken was very moist with lots of flavor. This will definitely be added to the book for future meals! The kids liked it as well...although Arianna was a little more interested in the broccoli- she'll fight you for some broccoli :-) We served it with this Focaccia Bread for a great meal!
