Ingredients

  • 2 cups marinara
  • 1 1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan
  • olive oil for cooking

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prep three dishes: one with flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with bread crumbs, Parmesan, salt, pepper, and parsley.
  • Pound chicken breasts to 1/2 inch thick. If necessary, you can cut large breasts in half. Place the chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap to eliminate mess.
  • Dip chicken in flour, then eggs, then bread crumb mix -- make sure it's well coated in each step. 
  • Cook in olive oil in a large pan, browning on each side, which should take about four minutes per side. 
  • Place one cup of marinara sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 dish, then lay the chicken on top. Divide the remaining marinara sauce across the top of each piece of chicken, then top with mozzarella cheese. 
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until internal chicken temperature reaches 165 degrees. You can top with fresh chopped basil before serving over spaghetti.
