This dish can be made many ways but I find this tastes the best.It is another family favorite. This can be served with any type of pasta and a salad or vegetable.I like to use just buttered noodles as the flavors from the chicken are enough.

Ingredients

6-8
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless(can buy the thin sliced or pound it thin.
salt and pepper to season chicken
1 1/2 c
flour, seasoned with salt and pepper
4
eggs, beaten
2 c
bread crumbs, seasoned
1/4 c
grated parmesan cheese
1 pkg
shredded mozzarella (8oz)
1 Tbsp
chopped basil or parsley for garnish
1 c
cooking oil (any type)
1 jar(s)
marinara sauce, any type (45 oz)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
If your cutlets are really thick it will take too long to cook so I like to pound them thin between two pieces of clear wrap or place them in a plastic bag and pound with a food mallet.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
Set up your workstation with bread crumbs, flour and egg.Dip each cutlet in flour, egg, then bread crumbs.
2
Once they are all ready, Fry in a fry pan with heated cooking oil until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side.If you have a big frypan you can do them in two batches. If you have a smaller fry pan, don't use all the oil as it may be too much.
3
Transfer to a long baking pan lined with about a cup of tomato sauce. Top each cutlet with some tomato sauce, parmesan cheese and mozzarella.Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 7-10 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove from the oven and sprinkle some basil or parsley.
