I've been making this since the first week I was married. Back then I actually made my own pasta sauce. Now I usually get a jar. But it's good either way.

Ingredients

6 large
chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless
1 c
finely grated parmesan cheese, divided (the kind in the green can)
1 Tbsp
crushed italian herbs
1 large
jar of your favorite pasta sauce (or 3 1/2 cups of your own homemade)
1 1/2 c
shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash and dry the chicken breast halves. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a shallow baking dish that will just hold the chicken, placed close together. Place 3/4 cup of the parmesan cheese in a shallow plate and stir in the Italian herbs.
2
Press the chicken breast halves one at a time into the parmesan cheese coating, on both sides, getting a fine layer of cheese to stick. Place chicken breasts in the baking dish. Sprinkle any leftover coating on top of chicken breasts.
3
Pour the pasta sauce evenly over the chicken breasts. Then, sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese evenly over top of chicken breasts. Finally, top with the shredded mozzarella.
4
Bake for 35-40 minutes, until juices run clear.

Serve with pasta of your choice and a nice green salad. Italian bread is good, too. I recommend my Susan's Herbed Italian Bread.
