dinner tonight; chicken parmesan. i've never had chicken parmesan so obviously i've never tried to make it but right now, i'm making do with whatever ingredients i have on hand to avoid a trip to the store for at least a few more days and as a result, this is what i came up with. i must say, it was actually really good and another success as far as the little mouths at the table were concerned.
i don't have exact measurements for anything so i apologize in advance.
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/5 cup italian bread crumbs
1 egg white, beaten
1/5 cup part skim mozzarella (i used shredded)
2 Tbsp parmesan (shredded)
2 cups roasted tomatoes (i used canned)
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tbsp olive oil, separated
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1 tbsp granulated sugar
whole wheat spaghetti noodles
preheat broiler (low heat).
heat 1/2 the olive oil in one skillet over medium high heat. add the garlic and saute for about 15 seconds. add the tomatoes, basil, parsley and sugar. let simmer over low heat for approx. 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
cook noodles according to package directions eliminating salt and oil.
heat other 1/2 of oil in another skillet over medium-high heat. dip each chicken breast in egg and again in bread crumbs. place in pan with heated oil. cook 6-8 minutes per side.
drain noodles and rinse with hot water.
move cooked chicken to broiler pan. top with tbsp of tomato mixture. divide cheese among all three breasts. broil for 3 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
serve chicken atop noodles (i put another dollop of the tomato mixture on top of the noodles before adding the chicken).
this yielded 3 servings (noodles were leftover). kids split one breast.
i'm too lazy to put together the nutritional info. okay?
