Updated Jan 23, 2012

Ingredients

  • 8 oz uncooked spaghetti
  • 1 jar (24 oz) marinara sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dry red wine
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 lb chicken cutlets or 8 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups Progresso™ Italian style panko crispy bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend (6 oz)
  • Fresh basil leaves, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Cook and drain spaghetti as directed on package. Return to saucepan; cover to keep warm.
  • 2
    In small saucepan, heat marinara sauce, wine and chopped basil leaves over medium-high heat. Cook until reduced to 2 1/2 cups, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  • 3
    If using chicken breasts, place each chicken breast, smooth side down, between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In shallow medium bowl, beat eggs slightly with fork. Place bread crumbs in another bowl. Dip chicken in egg; coat with crumbs.
  • 4
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat. Cook half of chicken in oil 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until golden brown on outside and no longer pink in center. Remove from skillet to plate; cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and chicken. Place chicken in baking dish, overlapping if necessary; sprinkle with cheese.
  • 5
    Bake uncovered 5 minutes or just until cheese is melted. Place spaghetti and sauce on plate; add chicken. Garnish with basil.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For best results, pound chicken pieces slightly to get an even 1/4-inch thickness for all pieces.
