Someone's in the Kitchen Making Chicken Parmesan

It was our beautiful daughter-in-love’s birthday this week and she and our son came over for a fun evening. She requested Chicken Parmesan and it was a hit, so here’s the recipe.

I have a question that maybe you can help with. How are you supposed to serve it? I just put the separate dishes on the table with pasta, sauce and the baking dish with chicken and everyone served their own. I guess you could fix each plate before setting it on the table. Any other suggestions?

Parmesan Crusted Chicken
2 large eggs
1 cup dried plain-style bread crumbs
2 tbsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
3/4 cups freshly grated Parmesan-
4boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Sliced Mozarella cheese

Whisk the eggs in a pie plate to blend. Mix the bread crumbs, garlic powder, and Italian seasonings in another pie plate. Place the cheese in a third pie plate. Sprinkle the chicken generously with salt and pepper. Coat the chicken completely with the cheese, patting to adhere, then dip into the eggs. Coat completely with the bread crumbs, patting to adhere. Add to greased 9×13 pan.

Bake at 375 for 35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and crispy. (I cooked it for an hour and added the mozzarella for the last 10 minutes until it was melted & lightly brown) Serve with angel hair pasta and pasta sauce. (I used Prego brand).

I have gotten some great ideas and recipes fom Saturday Stirrings over at Carol's so go visit her for kitchen inspiration!

This sounds great. I have chicken breasts in the freezer waiting for a good recipe. I'll try it for dinner tonight!
I think you could put the pasta in a long serving dish, with chicken & sauce on top. Or leave the sauce separate.

I see you tried my "Chipotle Roast" and liked it! Yay! I'm especially happy about that since I "created" the recipe. Thanks for letting me know you tried it!

I'm getting my chicken out of the freezer now to try your Parmesan Chicken recipe.

I made your parmesan chicken today. It was delicious! My daughter's boyfriend enjoyed it, too!
I'll make it again.
