CHICKEN PARMESAN FAST AND EASY - DINNER AT HOME

 CHICKEN PARMESAN
DINNER AT HOME

 Many Italian restaurants I have found serve frozen Chicken Parmesan patties that are breaded and frozen for weeks or months.  Why a chef would buy and serve a frozen product when you can make the real thing in minutes is beyond me.  I whipped up this version of Chicken Parmesan in less than an hour and had dinner on the table for my girls when they got home.  To save time, I used a bottle of Bertolli Tomato Sauce rather than make my own sauce.  I am sold on Bertolli Sauces and use them often.  It really is better than my homemade sauce that takes me hours to make on weekends.  I started the sauce with a small sweet onion, garlic and fresh oregano.  Sauteed these ingredients in olive oil and then added the bottle of sauce.  Heated up the sauce and let it simmer.  Pounded out three chicken breasts until they were about 1/2" thick.  Dredged the chicken in seasoned flour and then coated in egg wash.  Transferred the chicken to a dish of Seasoned Italian Bread Crumbs and coated thoroughly.  Placed the chicken in a heated pan with olive oil.  Be careful not to have too hot of a pan.  The chicken will burn while not cooking through.  Cook the chicken on both sides for about 3-4 minutes each side.  Make sure the chicken is cooked through.  Place the cooked chicken in a oven safe dish and cover with the tomato sauce.  Grate the Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheeses and top the chicken.  Bake in 450 degree pre-heated oven for around 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  Top with fresh basil.
Serve with pasta and a little tomato sauce.  Simple and fast Chicken Parmesan.  I am no chef but this recipe is quick and pretty good for a simple dinner at home.
