Chicken Parmesan

Yumm – Parmesan cheese and tomato sauce – two of my favorites. Of course I like this with pasta. Also good as a sandwich in a crusty Italian roll.

Ingredients
  • 4 - 6 chicken breasts, boned and skinned
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ⅓ cup bread crumbs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ¾ cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
  • ¼ salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ pound thinly sliced mozzarella cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan.
  2. Dip chicken pieces in beaten egg, then in the bread crumb mixture. Cook to brown on both sides - about 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile in a saucepan heat the remaining tablespoon of oil, and saute the onions until tender. Stir in the tomato sauce, salt, pepper and oregano. Bring to a boil.
  4. Place the chicken pieces in a baking dish. Pour ¾ of the sauce over top. Arrange the mozzarella slices over top, and pour the remaining sauce over all.
  5. Bake, uncovered, for about 20 minutes, until chicken is cooked and cheese is melted.
