Baked Chicken Parmesan by Susan

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.

How to Make Baked Chicken Parmesan by Susan


  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.
