Chicken Parmesan

The two recipes featured today make quick and tasty entrees that are good enough for special dinners. Chicken Parmesan is a favourite birthday supper and I serve it with pasta and a salad.

2 pounds chicken breasts (I usually cut them in half)
Italian bread crumbs,
(or bread crumbs mixed with Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese)
1 egg, beaten
oil for frying pan
1 jar of pasta sauce
grated cheese

Dip chicken breasts in egg and then coat with seasoned bread crumbs. Heat about 2 tablespoons of oil in a medium frying pan and brown both sides of the chicken
Place the prepared chicken in a roasting pan or covered casserole dish. Pour pasta sauce over the top.
Bake at 375F for 45-50 minutes, until chicken is well cooked.
Sprinkle with grated parmesan or mozzerella cheese before serving.
