Chicken Parmesan

Yum, yum, yum. We have been cooking this for years. It's one of the few things our picky nieces will actually eat so I "think" we started cooking this one of the weekends they came over. Regardless, it's cheap, easy and delicious.

Totally my kind of meal.

2 eggs
2 T water
4-6 chicken breasts
Seasoning (salt, black pepper, red pepper, garlic powder)
Panko bread crumbs
Olive oil
1 jar spaghetti sauce (we like Prego)
Mozzarella cheese, grated
Parmesan cheese, grated
Pasta (we used thin spaghetti)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk eggs with water in shallow dish. Set aside.

Season chicken to your liking. Dip each breast in the egg mixture then dredge in bread crumbs till well coated. Set aside until all breasts are coated.

Heat olive oil in skillet on stove. Set a wire cooling rack inside a half sheet pan to prepare for baking.

Brown chicken in the skillet, 2 breasts at a time for 2-3 minutes on each side. Chicken will not be cooked all the way through. Set on top of your cooling rack contraption. Repeat for each breast.

Top each breast with 2 T sauce and 1 T of each cheese. Bake for 10 minutes.

Heat the remainder of the sauce in a saucepan. Season to your liking. Serve over pasta.

I could eat this chicken for days. It is soooo tender and the Panko is soooo good and crunchy.

This should seriously take the place of any chicken parmesan recipe you already have.
