Chicken Parmesan Serves 4
2 Eggs beaten with wisk
Seasoned bread crumbs
Fresh ground pepper
Favorite Cooking oil
1 Qt. Ragu Spaghetti Sauce Choice of mix (or your favorite pasta sauce)
10 oz Package Shredded Mozzarella cheese
For thick chicken breast, trim off fat and carefully slice horizontally in half for a thinner fillet. For smaller breast, hammer on skin side to frac14;" thick.
Heat oil in skillet, season meat with fresh ground pepper, then coat each breast in flour, egg wash then breadcrumbs. Place breaded fillets in hot oil and fry until golden brown on each side. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
Coat a 9" x 13" glass dish with cooking spray or oil and place fillets in it.
Take a spoon and cover each fillet with sauce, then a generous portion of shredded mozzarella cheese. Place dish in oven for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden brown.
Remove from pan to serving platter or right to the plates. Serve with a tossed salad of mixed greens, garlic toast and a side portion of pasta of your choice (I like angel hair pasta) and remaining sauce with grated Parmesan cheese.
A nice Cabernet or Merlot goes well with this dish. Dessert of your choice. This dish is great for leftovers, so don't worry about making too much. This is a simple meal that can be made elegant by using your good china.
You can also make this dish a day ahead. Cool the fried chicken breast then cover with sauce and cheese and put in the refrigerator covered with plastic wrap. Then place in pre heated 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden brown. Serve immediately.
Enjoy! ~ Joe (the doughgod)
