Another Delicious Dinner

On Tuesday night I made a recipe I have been wanting to make for a while now. Baked Chicken Parmesan, mmmmm. The aroma that was in our house was seriously divine. I found the recipe here, and I will be going back for more recipes, that's for sure! And because I like her blog title :)

The ONLY thing I would change, literally the only, is that I would heat up my marinara sauce in a pot beforehand, and spoon some onto the pasta, before I lay on the chicken. It was soooo delicious, we just added some more sauce because the pasta seemed like it was well, just noodles. And, in her picture it looks like she did that, so I must not have followed along too well!

I wish I would have brought a Tupperware with some sauce to work the next day, because unfortunately, I fell into that problem, and was left with some dry pasta dish, that tasted amazing, and was SO flavorful, but was dry. This recipe was super easy, and didn't take long at all. It's a perfect weekday meal, and I know I will be making it again VERY soon!

A lighter version of the traditional chicken parmesan that's baked to absolute crisp perfection!
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut crosswise in half
  • 3/4 cup Italian style breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, homemade or storebought
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.
  • In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
  • In a small bowl, combine breadcrumbs and Parmesan. Working one at a time, brush butter on each chicken breast and dredge in breadcrumb mixture, pressing to coat.
  • Place onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Gently flip and bake until the crust is golden and the chicken is completely cooked through, about 5 minutes more.
  • Remove from oven; spoon 1 tablespoon marinara on each chicken breast and sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons mozzarella. Place into oven and bake until cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.
  • Serve immediately with spaghetti and additional marinara, if desired.

^^^ See, more sauce desired. Silly me, I didn't read well! I didn't have a picture of how mine turned out, because it smelled so incredibly good, and Tanner had already popped some sparkling cider, so I just wanted to sit down and devour it!

Chicken was tough for me to bake at our old condo, because I could never figure out the correct temperature settings. The chicken, and my cookies for that matter, never seemed to turn out. So, this is my second or third baked chicken in the new house, and I get so happy when it turns out to be like butta! So delish. Make it now!
