My family loves when I make my Chicken Parmesan and serve it with Vodka sauce pasta. This is also a good version if you have those who don't particularly like tomato sauce, as you can make the chicken parm "naked" with no sauce and it's still scrumptious!

Ingredients

4
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1/2 c
italian bread crumbs
1/4 c
parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 tsp
basil, dried
1 medium
egg
1 dash(es)
salt and pepper
1/2 c
flour
1 pinch
garlic
1 pinch
oregano
1 pinch
pepper
1 Tbsp
butter or margarine (butter is best)
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1 c
red sauce for pasta (your choice)
1 c
mozzarella cheese, shredded (more or less)
Few pinch
parsley flakes

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Flatten chicken to 1/4 inch thickness. (If chicken breasts are very large, you may split them into two portions before flattening)
2
In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and basil.
3
In another bowl, beat the egg with salt and pepper.
4
In yet another bowl, combine the flour, garlic, oregano and pepper.
5
Coat chicken with seasoned flour, then dip chicken into egg, and finally, coat with crumb mixture.
6
In a large skillet, brown chicken in butter and oil over medium heat for 5-8 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. (avoid overcooking)
7
Take cooked chicken and spoon about 2 tablespoons of your fav. red sauce over each piece and cover with shredded cheese. Sprinkle on some parsley for an added touch. Broil on high until Mozzarella starts to brown.
8
Serve with pasta and veggies...yum!!!

ThANK YOU SO MUCH! My daughter asks for this VERY often, and I've made several different sauces to accompany it. I hope it turned out well for you and your husband, Connee!

Outstanding, Martha! Made this tonight for my husband's birthday. Awaiting his return from work until I can place under the broiler. But I tasted it and it's truly delicious. Cannot wait to see his expression when he tastes it. Great job and thanks for sharing :-)
