Skillet Chicken Parmesean

This is one of my families favorite go to recipes if we need to eat and be out the door fast!  I must be in comfort food mode with the temps getting cooler.  This recipe is sure to warm you up!  Coming soon, add more wine to your dine, look for wine pairings in my next blog. 

4 skinless boneless Chicken breast halves (about 1 pound)
1/3 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg, beaten
2 cups favorite spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

*washed and dried baby spinach (optional)

Flatten chicken breast halves to 1/4 inch thickness between plastic wrap or in zip plastic bag.  Mix bread crumbs and Parmesan Cheese.  Dip chicken in egg then coat with bread crumb mixture.  Heat oil in 12 inch skillet over medium heat until hot.  Cook chicken in oil 10 - 15 minutes turning once until the juice of the chicken is no longer pink.  Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over chicken and add pasta sauce.  Cook over low heat 2-3 minutes or until sauce is hot and cheese is melted.  Serve over hot pasta.

If you want to add some more veges to your meal, you can pile spinach on the hot pasta followed by the chicken and sauce.

Last two minutes of cooking time

Dinner is served!  Enjoy!
