Skillet Parmesan Chicken

This is real comfort food. A family favorite. If you can, buy the fresh mozzarella. You wont believe the difference and its worth it.

 

Ingredients

 

4 skinless boneless chicken breast, halves
12 cup flour
12 cup seasoned Italian bread crumbs
14 cup parmesan cheese
1 egg
12 cup milk
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil
4 oz mozzarella cheese, sliced (if you can get it, the soft fresh kind is best, it melts sooooo creamy)
1 salt
1 salt
1 parmesan cheese, for sprinkling on top

Directions

  1. Pound the chicken breasts between two slices of plastic wrap until about 1/4″ thick.
  2. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess.
  4. Dip in egg/milk mixture, then in breadcrumb/Parmesan mixture.
  5. Heat the butter and olive oil in a large deep skillet.
  6. Brown the chicken breasts over medium heat until golden on each side (about 2-3 min per side).
  7. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
  8. Add the marinara sauce to the skillet.
  9. Heat to boiling and simmer 10 minutes.
  10. Add the chicken breasts to the sauce and sprinkle Parmesan over them.
  11. Place a slice of mozzarella on each piece of chicken.
  12. Cover and simmer about 8- 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the chicken is tender.
  13. Serve with your favorite pasta- we like linguine.
