Super Easy Chicken Parmesan

Here is a super easy recipe.  It is the kind of recipe you can "dress up" for a fancy dinner by adding tasteful side dish, some seasoned bread, and a fancy salad....heck you could go all out and serve it with wine {or whatever adult beverage you consider "fine" like beer}.  I prefer to "dress it down" and put in the feed trough in front of the family.  The possibilities are endless......

Here goes:

You will need the following:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

  • 3 or 4 boneless skinless chicken boobs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 jar of spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup of Italian style bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese 
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 Tbsp butter
Cut your chicken boobs in half.

Then beat eggs in a small dish.

Mix together the Italian style bread crumbs and the Parmesan cheese in a bowl.

Heat 1-2 Tbsp of vegetable oil in a pan on low to medium heat.

Dip the chicken in the egg mixture.

And then the crumb and cheese mixture.  Be sure to get the chicken covered well.

Once all the chicken is covered add it to the pan and allow to cook on medium heat about 8 minutes {be sure to flip it about half way}.


While you wait for the chicken to finish cooking add the spaghetti sauce to a greased 9x13 baking dish.

Remove the cooked chicken from the pan and set aside.  Then add the butter to the pan and allow to melt on low-medium heat.

Then add the chopped garlic and onions and allow to cook for about 2 minutes.

While the onion and garlic cook you can "cut the cheese"...tee hee.  I use 1 slice per piece of chicken.

Add your chicken to the sauce and top with the onion and garlic mixture and then the cheese.  I also used some of the left over crumb mixture and sprinkled it on the top of the cheese.  Place in oven for 20-25 minutes.

Cook the pasta according to the package directions while the chicken is in the oven.  Use the pasta of your choice.   I used bowtie pasta {because I was going for that "fancy" dinner that required ties}.

When the chicken is done and the cheese is melted to a slightly golden brown remove it from the oven.

Then serve it up in the trough.....or whatever you would like.
