CHICKEN PARMESAN RECIPE INGREDIENTS :
- 4 chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes (halved)
- 16 slices mozzarella cheese
- 2 cups of your favorite pasta or marinara sauce
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 cup Italian style bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 eggs (beaten)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
First of all pound chicken breast thin. Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Mix half the Parmesan cheese with the bread crumbs.
And then coat chicken breasts in flour, dip in egg, coat in bread crumb/Parmesan cheese mixture. Lay breaded chicken breasts out flat and put equal amounts of halved tomatoes on each breast. Cover tomatoes with 2 slices of Mozzarella cheese on each breast.
Next is to roll up chicken as you would when making Chicken Cordon Bleu and hold together with toothpicks, if needed.
Put some of the marinara sauce on the bottom of a greased baking dish. In a skillet, sauté the chicken breast in oil until golden brown, then transfer to the baking dish.
Cover evenly with remaining marinara sauce and top with 2 slices of mozzarella cheese per breast.
Bake in a 400°F degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly and to an internal temperature of 165°F degrees. Enjoy the chicken parmesan !
