MarthaRayDeen's StoryMy 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!
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
italian bread crumbs
parmesan cheese, grated
salt and pepper
butter or margarine (butter is best)

red sauce for pasta (your choice)
mozzarella cheese, shredded (more or less)
1Flatten chicken to 1/4 inch thickness. (If chicken breasts are very large, you may split them into two portions before flattening)
2In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and basil.
3In another bowl, beat the egg with salt and pepper.
4In yet another bowl, combine the flour, garlic, oregano and pepper.
5Coat chicken with seasoned flour, then dip chicken into egg, and finally, coat with crumb mixture.
6In 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)
7Take 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.
8Serve with pasta and veggies...yum!!!

Had this for dinner tonight! Um-Oh!!!! Served over spaghetti tossed with a little olive oil and a salad. The only change I will make for next time is cutting flour back to 1/2 cup-I wasted to much fixing 4.

Lisa, I actually freeze any of my leftover flour in a gallon sized ziploc bag, that way I can pull it out and use it when I have smaller portions to cook. Good suggestion, however, I may make that change for others!
