Italian Chicken & Cheese

October 22, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

We had my mom over for dinner tonight and I chose this recipe for 2 reasons. 1) It seemed relatively quick and easy to prepare after work and 2) it sounded delicious.  I love Chicken Parmesan, but it is slightly more time consuming and sometimes not possible to make after work when there are places to go and people to see.  To make this recipe even quicker, I used store bought spaghetti sauce.  I served this dish with spaghetti and garlic toast, and it was awesome!

Chicken:
8 (4-ounce) boneless skinless chicken breast halves (I used 4)

Sauce:
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Topping:

3/4 cup dried bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp butter, melted
6 ounces (1 1/2 cups) Mozzarella Cheese, shredded

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Place chicken into ungreased 13×9-inch baking dish or 3-quart shallow casserole.

2. Combine all sauce ingredients in medium bowl; spoon over chicken. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.

3. Meanwhile, combine bread crumbs, parsley and butter in small bowl. Sprinkle cheese over chicken; top with bread crumb mixture. Continue baking 5 to 10 minutes or until chicken is fork tender and bread crumbs are browned.
