Chicken Parmesan


I made this without using bread crumbs and it was so much better IMO! I also did not use the traditional "spaghetti" because these noodles are so delicious!

Ingredients

1. 8 chicken breast cutlets
2. 3 TBSP of Olive Oil (I used extra virgin)
3. 1 teaspoon of Rosemary
4. 1 teaspoon of Italian Parsley (it's got to be chopped really well or the flavor is too strong on this bite or that bite....you can use regular parsley)
5. 1 teaspoon of Thyme (chopped really well!!)
6. salt and pepper
7. Shredded mozzarella
8. Fresh Parmesan. Kraft makes it easy. You can purchase the huge chunk of Parmesan with the built in shredder at the grocery store for like 5 or $6.
9. 8 pieces of cut up unsalted butter. (like 8 TBSP)
10. 2 cups of Tomato sauce (I'll post up that recipe as well) or just use marinara.

Directions

Here's a pic of the ingredients since I didn't have that option in the 'ingredients section.'
I know we all know what these ingredients are but everyone loves pics....


Preheat the oven to 450'

1.Stir the olive oil and all of the herbs including a dash of salt (remember you will be salting the breasts) and pepper in a bowl together and set aside.

2. Sprinkle a little bit of salt directly onto the chicken breasts, but don't go crazy! Let them set for 15 minutes.
3. Brush both sides of all chicken breasts with the oil and herbs mixture.

4. Heat a large skillet on med/high heat.
5. Add chicken. 2 minutes per side. No longer than that.
Seriously just 2 minutes no matter how tempting it is to fully cook them!

6. Remove from heat.
7. Spread some sauce in a large baking dish, (about 1/2 cup)
8. Place chicken breast in the dish and put more sauce around and on them.
9. Add 1 piece of unsalted butter on each breast.
10. Add 1 TBSP of mozzarella on each breast.
11. Grate your fresh Parmesan on top of each breast.

Bake for about 3 or 4 minutes. The cutlets are usually kind of thin so use your own judgment there but normally it only takes about 3 to 4 minutes in baking due to the few minutes of searing beforehand.

This will serve 8 people, or 4 really hungry people.

I seriously recommend using my Tomato Sauce recipe. I'll post it as well.

Here are the noodles I use. They're perfect for this dish!!Here are the noodles I use. They're perfect for this dish!!

I LOVE chicken parmesan. Olive Garden used to have a stuffed chicken parmesan. It was a combination of cheeses and spices stuffed in the middle. Gah it was so goshdarn yummy.
