Baked Chicken Parmesan


Italian food is always an easy choice for me.  I love pasta, and chicken Parmesan is my absolute favorite dish (though I'm partial to eggplant, too).  So when I was looking for a chicken recipe I figured it was time to give it a try.  I was not in the mood at all for pan-frying, and have been trying to make some healthier options, so I opted for a baked version. I found this oven-baked chicken parm recipe that had some great reviews, and just downsized the amount of pasta sauce so that it wouldn't be completely soaked.

First I dipped the chicken in the egg mixture, then in the bread crumbs and coated both sides.


Then I arranged the chicken in a baking dish.


I added the pasta sauce and cheese to the top and placed the chicken in the oven.


They were perfect after 30 minutes of baking. I left them in for 30 because they were slightly frozen when I put them in the oven.


It was so good and ridiculously easy! I'm glad I cut back on the sauce because it the bread crumbs cooked well and stayed on the chicken. I served it with vegetable noodles and dinner was fantastic!
