Updated July 30, 2010

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 cup Progresso™ Plain Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 2 oz. (1/2 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese

Steps

  • 1
    Place 1 chicken breast half, boned side up, between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Working from center, gently pound chicken with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick; remove wrap. Repeat with remaining chicken breast halves.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and parsley; mix well. Dip chicken in beaten egg; coat with bread crumb mixture.
  • 3
    In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear, turning once.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, heat spaghetti sauce. Sprinkle chicken with mozzarella cheese; cover skillet to melt cheese. Serve sauce with chicken.

  • 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.
