• 4 boneless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness

• 1 egg

• 1/2 cup milk

• seasoned bread crumbs

• 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil

• 8 slices mozzarella cheese, or more

• 1 jar (16 oz) spaghetti sauce

• Parmesan cheese


Whisk together the egg and milk. Dip the chicken breasts in milk and egg mixture and then in bread crumbs. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken in the hot oil on both sides until golden, about 5 to 6 minutes on each side. Drain on top of a paper towel when done to soak up the excess oil.

Set chicken in a baking dish (pour a little sauce on the bottom first).

Slice 8 pieces of mozzarella cheese and put two on each chicken breast. Pour the rest of your favorite spaghetti sauce over all. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and a little more mozzarella and bake at 350° for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until bubbly.

Serve with spaghetti, garlic bread and a nice tossed salad.
