I’m a big fan of Italian food. And chicken parmesan ranks right up there as a favorite. I’ve been known to make “Poor Man’s Chicken Parm” using breaded chicken patties and spaghetti sauce. Yeah, yeah, My bad. When I want something fast and don’t mind the clean-up, I pull out this recipe.
Total Time: 26 Min.
Prep Time: 10 Min.
Cook Time: 16 Min.
Make a crispy coating of Parm and bread crumbs for Chicken Breasts Parmesan. Add zesty marinara to Chicken Breasts Parmesan for our version of the classic.
What You Need
1-3/4 cups CLASSICO Marinara with Plum Tomatoes & Olive Oil Pasta Sauce
1/2 lb. linguine, uncooked
1/2 cup KRAFT Shredded Parmesan Cheese
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 lb.)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup KRAFT Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese
Let’s Make It
1 – Heat pasta sauce, and cook pasta as directed on package omitting salt.
2 – Meanwhile, beat egg lightly in shallow dish. Mix next 3 ingredients in separate shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg, then in cheese mixture, turning to evenly coat both sides of each breast.
3 – Heat oil in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 6 min. on each side or until done (165ºF). Top with mozzarella; cover. Cook on low heat 3 min. or until mozzarella is melted.
4 – Drain pasta; place on platter. Top with sauce and chicken.
Tip 1 – Family Fun: Take a long walk with your family after enjoying this meal together.
My tip: I serve either one LARGE breast or two small ones. Don’t judge. This makes two servings for us but since there’s only two of us, there ya go.
If you want all the nutritional details head over to MY FOOD & FAMILY. I’m sure everyone has their own favorite Chicken Parm recipe but Jacey Hunter from HUNTER’S MOON uses this one because it’s quick, easy, and tastes like she made it from scratch. It’s her go-to romantic dinner when it’s just she and Nate, but the girls they adopted like it too, cuz “SKITTY!” If you’d like to read about how these two met, you can grab HUNTER’S MOON which is available from many on-line booksellers now. Just click on either pic with the cover or the title and head over to Books2Read to find this book or any of my books. Who else is a fan of Italian? 🙋🏼♀️
