Easy Chicken Parmesana

(image off google images)

As with most recipes I post here, I couldn't find a recipe that I loved anywhere, so I kind of made up my own for what I was hoping for. This seemed to be a new favorite for the fam. Yay. It is so simple, I'm almost embarrassed. :)

2 Chicken breasts thawed and cut into fillet halves or thirds (each breast)
2 eggs + 1/3 cup water (beated together in their own bowl)

1 1/2 cups italian bread crumbs
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano

1 can of spaghetti sauce
Spaghetti noodles

Set the oven to BROIL
Soak the cut chicken breasts in the egg mixture while you mix the spices with bread crumbs
Take the soaked chicken breasts and pat the bread crumb mix all over the breast
Bake under the broiler for 1o minutes and then turn the breasts over--bake for another 10 minutes
Take the breasts out and dip them again (with crumbs still on) in the egg wash and then pat more crumbs over each breast until all the egg mixture and bread crumbs are used up over all the chicken pieces.
Bake again for 10 minutes on one side and then 10 minutes on the other.

Meanwhile, after the second coating of bread crumbs, start your boiling water and prepare to boil your pasta. Also heat your spaghetti sauce.

Check to see if the chicken is done and when it is done (along with the sauce and pasta), call everyone to the table.

Place the chicken on the pasta and then sauce over the chicken......Sprinkle parmesan cheese or mozzerella cheese over the sauce if desired......serve with veggies, salad, bread, whatever. Its delicious! Even the next day!
