This is a favorite around our house; it's quick, easy and tastes great! This is a recipe that I came up with; measurements can be varied depending on your taste, i.e. if you want more cheese add more cheese, if you want less use less, you really can't hurt it. And you really can't mess it up as long as you use this recipe as a foundation.

I use this chicken recipe for a lighter version of my Chicken Parmesan because I like the fact that you bake the chicken instead of pan-frying. The chicken is so moist, tender and delicious! I use fresh grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and seasoned Italian bread crumbs. The last five minutes of baking I top the chicken with spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of additional Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

I thought this recipe was extremely easy to make with an exceptional outcome. It looked like a fancy cook made it instead of me. I did make a few changes, not in the basic recipe, but added a spoonful of spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese to the top of the chicken pieces, placed them back in the oven to melt the cheese. They turned out great!!! I served it with salad and a side of buttered/garlic noodles...and it is now the meal I take to friends. Very good.

I make a Parmesan Chicken that is almost identical to this one that my family LOVES! I cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts into 3-4 pieces and pound them out really thin, salt & pepper them, dredge in flour, then beaten egg and then in the breadcrumb/parmesan mixture. Fry them up in 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil till golden brown! Don't over cook them or the meat gets really dry. If you do this one right the outside is very crispy & crunchy with a moist, juicy, tender inside. One of my families favorite summertime comfort foods, hands down! Serve with a chilled creamy potato salad and corn on the cob, YUM! The ultimate comfort food!
