Chicken Parmesan

Here's a moderately easy recipe for chicken parmesan! I hope you try it, and like it! My family did!

Chicken Parmesan
What you need:
4-6 boneless chicken breasts; pounded very thin (or sliced in half; lengthwise)
1 1/2 cups flour
4 eggs; beaten with 1 TBL water and some salt and pepper
2 cups panko bread crumbs.
1 cup oil
mozzarella slices
parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
spaghetti sauce

Place flour in a large bowl (large enough to dip chicken in it!) and set aside.
Place eggs in a large bowl and set aside.
Place bread crumbs in a large bowl and set aside.
Preheat oven to 400
Heat oil in a large skillet on high; large enough for all chicken; or divide between two skillets

What to do:
After pounding or filleting chicken, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with flour, than dip in eggs, than cover with bread crumbs, and place in hot oil. Cook each chicken breast until golden brown on each side.

Transfer to casserole pan and top each chicken with spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese, and about 1 TBL of parmesan cheese. Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Serve over buttered spaghetti

yum yum

Mozzarella stuffing chicken

I never liked thanksgiving "stuffing" growing up. Actually, the only time I've ever liked it was at my husband's families' Thanksgiving last year (did you get that?!), and my husband's grandmama B made it homemade. It was GOOD! SOO I was a bit surprised; yet, hopeful, that I liked this recipe. It definitely has that thanksgiving stuffing flavor, but plenty of other flavors to balance it nicely. My 8 year old really likes this, and that always makes me feel good (he's also the pickiest of the bunch)

Mozzarella Stuffing Chicken

4-6 large skinless boneless chicken breasts (depending on how many peeps you're feeding!)

Mozzarella cheese slices (I buy the pre packaged slices for sandwiches; enough slices to cover chicken)

1 can Cream of Chicken soup

salt and pepper to taste

1 cup chicken flavored stuffing mix (I'm sure any flavor and brand will suffice!)

1 1/2 sticks butter, melted and divided (1/2 stick in one bowl and 1 stick in another bowl)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour 1/2 stick melted butter in the bottom of a casserole pan. Place chicken in; place cheese slices on top (enough to cover chicken). Mix soup with a dash of salt and pepper, then pour over cheese. Sprinkle the stuffing mix on top, and drizzle 1 stick melted butter over chicken and stuffing. Bake for 1 hour, uncovered.

*Tip- When serving, I cut up the chicken (for my kiddos), and scoop up the sauce and stuffing from the pan, and put on top of the cut up chicken.
