Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This recipe was really good and so easy! You'll impress all your guests if you serve this one.

I could not locate the Philly Cream Josee calls for in my grocery store, so I substituted with a sundried tomato & basil spreadable cheese.

Ingredients

2 medium
chicken breast (boneless & skinless)
1/2 lb
cooked multi-grain spaghetti
10 oz
Philadelphia Cooking Crème tomato & basil
1 1/2 c
panko bread crumbs Italian style
1 c
tomato sauce
1 c
shredded mozzarella cheese
1 c
chopped tomatoes
8
fresh basil leaves chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line and spray with cooking spray a cooking sheet and set aside. Cut chicken breasts in half horizontally and pound thin to make four cutlets. Toss chicken cutlets in 3 tablespoons of cooking crème and coat well.
2
In a shallow dish add bread crumbs and coat each chicken cutlet on both side and place on cooking sheet. Cook in oven for 12 minutes. While chicken cutlets are cooking boil spaghetti according to package instructions drain and reserve a ¼ cup of pasta water.
