Ingredients

1 1/3
cups hot water
1 1/2
cups milk
2
tablespoons butter
1
box Chicken Helper® crispy Parmesan chicken
1
lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1
tablespoon milk
2
tablespoons butter
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
1
cup tomato pasta sauce
1/4
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (1 oz)
Fresh basil leaves, if desired
  • 1 In 2-quart nonstick saucepan, stir hot water, 1 1/2 cups milk, 2 tablespoons butter, and the sauce mix and uncooked pasta (from Chicken Helper box). Heat just to boiling, stirring frequently. Reduce heat. Simmer uncovered about 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat. Sauce will thicken as it stands.
  • 2 Meanwhile, cut each chicken breast into 3 to 5 slices, holding knife at an angle. Slices should be about 1/2 inch thick.
  • 3 Place chicken in medium bowl. Add 1 tablespoon milk to moisten. Add seasoned crumbs (from Chicken Helper box) to coat chicken.
  • 4 In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons butter and the oil over medium heat until butter is melted. Carefully add chicken to hot butter mixture; cook 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown. Reduce heat to medium-low. Turn chicken, cook 4 to 6 minutes longer or until golden brown and centers are no longer pink.
  • 5 In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave pasta sauce uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes or until hot. To serve, place chicken on individual plates. Spoon pasta sauce over chicken; sprinkle with cheese. Serve with pasta.
