Alex walked in after a very rigorous cross country work out, looked at what was smelling so good, and said in a very tired voice, "Oh, thanks, mom." THAT is an endorsement!
Adjust all the amounts for however much you need or want to make. This is what I did for my big-eating family of five, and I have enough left for 2 lunches.
Easy Chicken Parmesan
4 chicken breasts (place between 2 sheets of waxed paper and pound to about 1-inch thick)
1/2 cup flour
3 eggs plus some salt and pepper, beaten together with a fork
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
if your chicken looks anorexic and all beat up, it's perfect
trust me, it tastes so much better than it looks!
While chicken is cooking, cook noodles as directed on package.
In a large, rimmed baking sheet, pour out spaghetti sauce. Place cooked chicken breasts on top of sauce in pan. Add a layer of cheese (I prefer monterey jack, but go all authentic and use mozzarella if that's your thing).
again, better than it looks.
Preheat broiler. Place pan under broiler and cook for a few minutes until the cheese is bubbling and browning.
To serve (I got all excited to eat and didn't take a picture of the final thing), put a pile of noodles on the plate and top with a chicken breast and some sauce. Most of us in the family only eat a half chicken breast, so that's where you'll get the left overs. I mean, really...look how huge those are!
Yum. Yum. Yum. All thumbs up from this family!!
