Chicken Parmesan with Marinara Sauce


This is one of my favorite "go-to" meals for dinner. The directions and ingredients are so simple, that I can actually make this dish completely from memory now (a very rare thing). Italian food has the wonderful ability to make an entire house smell like home. It's so classic, so delicious, so right.

Chicken Parmesan with Marinara Sauce
From Jill Parker, as told to me by Suzette
Yield: 4-6 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 45 minutes-1 hour
Total Time: about 1 hour, 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

3 thinly sliced chicken breasts (about 1/2 inch thick)
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup bread crumbs
2 cups marinara sauce (I used Prego, but you could also use this)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (or 3 big slices)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
8 oz. spaghetti noodles, cooked

DIRECTIONS:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.

Dip chicken in melted butter, then generously coat both sides with bread crumbs. Lay chicken flat in baking dish. Cover with marinara sauce, followed by mozzarella cheese, and then parmesan cheese. 

Bake in oven for 45 min. to an hour, until chicken is fully cooked. 

Serve with spaghetti noodles and garlic bread. 

Enjoy!
