I love this chicken parmesan recipe. It’s easy to construct and results in a yummy, soul-pleasing meal. I like to serve this delicious casserole with breadsticks and a green salad. Sometimes, if I’m feeling really froggy I’ll make a steamed veggie to go along with the meal, too. What types of side dishes do you enjoy serving with your Italian casseroles? Let me know in the comments!
I agree that this dish is truly tantalizing. Every time I make it my husband saves himself a serving to take to work the next for his lunch. he usually eats the chicken breast on a sandwich roll.
4 each boned and skinned Tyson chicken breasts, about 4 ounces each
2/3 cup 4C seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup Kraft grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon McCormick dried Italian seasoning
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/3 cup flour, Gold Medal all-purpose
3 large Eggland’s Best egg whites, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons Bertolli olive oil
4 cups Barilla spaghetti, cooked and drained (about 8 oz raw)
3 cups pasta sauce (make it yourself or bought)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup diced tomato (optional)
2 tablespoons chopped basil, fresh or dried basil leaves
Place each chicken breast between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap. Flatten to 1/4 inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin.
Start bringing pasta water to a boil in a pasta pot or large saucepan.
Combine breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, italian seasoning and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge each chicken breast in flour. Dip in egg whites, dredge in breadcrumb mixture.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook 5 minutes on each side or until done.
Start cooking the spaghetti separately.
Place the cooked and drained spaghetti in the bottom of a medium sized glass baking dish. Spoon one cup of the pasta sauce over the spaghetti. Spread the diced tomatoes on top. Arrange cooked chicken breast in a layer on top of that. Spoon the rest of the pasta sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella on top of all.
Place the baking dish on a cookie sheet and broil for three minutes or until the cheese melts and starts to brown slightly. Garnish with basil and serve.
