This dish is based on a few recipes I’ve seen, and couldn’t be easier.
Skinless Chicken Breast (1 per person)
About 3/4 cup flour
1/2 TBS minced garlic
3/4 cup breadcrumbs (I use Italian seasoned)
1/2 TBS Italian Seasoning
About 1 cup tomato sauce
Mozzarella (sliced or shredded)
Set up 3 bowls. In one bowl combine the flour, salt and pepper. In the second bowl lightly scramble the egg and mix with the minced garlic. In the third bowl combine the bread crumbs with the Italian seasoning.
Heat extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet to about medium to medium high heat.
Dredge each piece of chicken in the flour, then dip in the egg and then in the bread crumbs. Be sure to get an even coating of each step on the chicken. For a nice thick breading, re dip in egg and re coat in bread crumbs.
Place each piece of chicken in the skillet and cook until browned, about 4-5 minutes. Turn and cook for about the same time on the other side. Once both sides have a nice brown, place the cheese on each piece and cover with tomato sauce.
Cover the pan and turn the heat down. Let the chicken simmer for about 5-7 minutes. This will allow the chicken to cook the whole way through and let the cheese melt.
Serve with pasta and a salad and enjoy!!
