Quick Skillet Chicken Parmigiana

I love this.  It is very easy to prepare. 

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts (about 1 & 1/4 lb)
  • 1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cups pasta sauce (any variety, I like Ragu)
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper, flatten each piece of chicken to 1/4 inch thickness.  In a shallow dish, mix bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.  In another shallow dish, beat egg.  Dip chicken into egg, then coat with bread crumb mixture.
  2. In 12 inch skillet,  heat oil over medium heat.  Cook chicken in oil 10 – 15 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink in center.  Pour pasta sauce around chicken in skillet; heat until hot.  Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over chicken.

4 servings.  Serve the chicken over hot spaghetti and top with the sauce and more cheese if desired.
