Back in college my sister-in-law Kim made this for me and it has been a staple in my house ever since. I may have altered it a little over the years without knowing. Last Sunday we were challenged to not go to the store for a week. The idea was to see how prepared you actually were without notice to survive on what is in your house right now in case of a real emergency where you couldn’t run to the store. It’s now Thursday night and we have still made it without going to the store. This is what I made last night. It is so easy and most likely you have everything needed in your pantry.
|Kimi’s Parmesan Chicken|| |
- 4 chicken breasts (I like to butterfly them or pound them with a meat mallet so they are thinner.)
- ¼ cup butter, melted
- 1 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- jar of Spaghetti sauce
- mozzarella cheese
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray.
- Mix the Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and garlic powder in a shallow dish. It really doesn't matter how much Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs you have. Just make sure it's equal parts. Melt butter in a shallow bowl. Dip the chicken in the melted butter, then the bread crumb mixture then place on the baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes. Spoon spaghetti sauce over the middle of the chicken and sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top for the last 5-10 minutes of baking. Serve over spaghetti with extra warm spaghetti sauce.
