I promise, I haven’t been eating out. I’ve just been reheating leftovers. But I did make dinner tonight (last night I had a cupcake, so that didn’t count).
What you’ll need:
- 2 chicken breasts (about 1/2 lb each)
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup bread crumbs
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/2 – 1 cup marinara
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
- 2 Tbsp grated Romano cheese
- 2 small servings of pasta
Preheat your oven for 350. Meanwhile, pound your chicken to 1/2 inch thick (I finally got to use my brand new meat mallet!). Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess. Set aside.
Spray your baking dish with Pam.
In a shallow/wide bowl, crack your egg and whisk. On a plate combine together the bread crumbs, seasonings and salt/pepper/ Dip your floured chicken in the egg and then in the crumb mixture. Both sides. Shake off excess.
Place in baking dish. Spray top with Pam. Throw the temperature up to 400 and put your chicken in for 15 minutes.
While this is going, start boiling water for pasta. When it boils, obviously, put your pasta in. After 15 minutes, take your chicken out and pour over marinara sauce. Sprinkle cheese on top. Throw back in for 10 minutes. Drain pasta when it’s down.
