Parmesan Chicken


I'm pretty sure I'm becoming the queen of quick and easy meals. After spending the last 25+ years in the kitchen .. ok that is a bit dramatic.. ha, ha. But seriously, one of the main ways we made it living on one income and raising 8 children was that all our meals were cooked from scratch. It was how I stretched the $$ and kept our family well fed. I never minded it. I enjoyed spending all that time in the kitchen with my daughters cooking, teaching them to cook and how to have the skills to raise their future families.

Nowadays, my life has changed a lot and I find there are many other things I would rather be doing than spending lots of hours in the kitchen. So I look for recipes that taste good but also are quick and easy.


This is one of those recipes. 

Flatten chicken breasts with a meat pounder, top with spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese and a bit of italian seasonings.



Bake for 30 minutes.

Serve with pasta or rice, or garlic bread and a salad.



Parmesan Chicken

2 chicken breast halves
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
¼ cup paremesan cheese
Italian seasonings, just a sprinkle
salt & pepper, to taste

Lay the chicken breasts between parchment paper and pound with a meat pounder until they are somewhat thin.

Spray a 9x9 pan with non stick spray. Lay chicken breast halves in pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top each breast with ½ cup spaghetti sauce. Sprinkle on ½ cup of mozzarella cheese on each one. Top with 2T paremasan cheese. Sprinkle a little bit of Italian seasonings over each one.

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked and cheese is melted.

  3. Looks delicious, but after more than ten years following you, it seems strange to see such a small meal!
    How long have you had this blog? I followed you before you were on Blogger.
