Chicken Parmesan


4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts ( or as many as you need)

1 egg (depending on how many breasts you are coating)

1 cup of half & half or milk (depending on how many breasts you are coating)

2 cups flour

1 -2 cups of italian breadcrumbs (depending on how many breasts you are coating) (Make your own breadcrumbs! Recipe here!)

1 box of spaghetti noodles

1 cup Parmesan Cheese

2 cups Red Sauce (Make your own!)


In a medium bowl, beat egg and half & half. Set aside. Pour breadcrumbs into a plate.


Take chicken breasts and trim the fat. Butterfly them and cut each breast half into 2 pieces. Cover chicken with plastic wrap and pound each side of each breast piece with a meat tenderizing mallet.

Take one piece of chicken at a time and dip in this order:

1.Egg mixture

2. Flour

3. Egg Mixture

4. Breadcrumb

Set on chicken on a large plate and repeat until all chicken pieces are full coated with breadcrumbs.


When all chicken is coated, deep fry or bake the chicken pieces.

Deep Fry:

Place in preheated fryer with oil at 350°F and fry aproximately 7-10 minutes or until internal temp of chicken reaches 165°F. Time cooking depends on size of each piece of meat you are cooking. remove to cooling rack with papertowels palced below it.

Bake:

Place coated chicken pieces on a pan lined with parchment paper.

Bake in a 375°F oven for about 25 minutes or until all chicken pieces have an internal temp of 160°F. Time varies based on chicken size and QTY.


While chicken is cooking, boil a box of spaghetti noddles according to instructions on the package.


Assemble:

If they were deep fried: Line a cookie sheet with clean parchment paper.

Place each cooked breast on cookie sheet and spoon a generous amount of red sauce over each breast. Place a handful of grated mozzarella or provolone cheese on top of the sauce. On top of the mozzarella/provolone, grate freshly grated parmesan and place on top rack of the oven. You can use broil if you would like the cheese to brown a bit, otherwise, bake at 375°F for about 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Remove from oven and place on plate on top of cooked spaghetti noodles. Garnish with fresh parsley and freshly grated parmesan cheese.
