  • 2

  • 3

    Meanwhile, heat spaghetti sauce. Sprinkle chicken with mozzarella cheese; cover skillet to melt cheese. Serve sauce with chicken.

Expert Tips

Regular parsley can be used in place of the Italian parsley. Italian parsley has large flat leaves and a stronger flavor than regular curly-leaf parsley.

Pound the chicken breasts and coat them with the crumb mixture a couple of hours in advance. Cover and refrigerate them until you’re ready to cook.

To complete this Italian meal, serve Italian green beans and cooked pasta tossed with olive oil and fresh lemon zest.
