Easy and tasty dinner to make.


2 eggs, beaten

1/4 cup dry bread crumbs

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves.

16 oz jar of spaghetti sauce

1/4 lb shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup  grated Parmesan cheese


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F/175 degree C. Lightly grease a medium baking sheet.

2. Pour egg into a small shallow bowl. Place bread crumbs in a separate shallow bowl. Dip chicken into egg and then into the bread crumbs. Place coated chicken on the baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes., or until no longer pink and juices run clear.

3. Pour 1/2 of the spaghetti sauce into a 7 x11 inch baking dish. Place chicken over the sauce and cover with remaining sauce. Sprinkle mozzarella and Parmesan cheese on top and return to preheated oven for 20 minutes.


Another recipe I made a few changes to. First of all, I didn’t follow the measurements exactly. I used only one egg and estimated the number of breadcrumbs I’d use for my five pieces of boneless chicken. I also added some spice to the breadcrumbs: garlic powder, salt, onion powder, oregano, Parmesan cheese. The original recipe called for a jar of sauce to be used for two chicken breasts. Even though I used more chicken, I still only used one jar of sauce. Despite this, there was still enough sauce to go with the rice I served with it. If you were serving it with pasta, I might use more than one jar of sauce with the large quantity of chicken.

Lastly, the recipe implies that two baking trays are used. I used my 9×12 glass pyrex pan for both steps. I simply removed the chicken onto a cutting board at the 40 minute mark, added the sauce to the dish and put the chicken back in.
