  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Heat oil in a large (12-inch) skillet over medium-low heat. Beat egg and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a shallow dish. Mix bread crumbs, basil and pepper in another shallow dish. Dip both sides of each breast in egg mixture, then into bread crumb mixture to coat. Set on a platter.
  3. Increase heat to medium-high. When oil starts to shimmer, add chicken and saute, until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes on each side.
  4. Pour marinara sauce into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Place chicken in dish and top each with a portion of mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Bake until cheese completely melts and browns, about 20 minutes.
  5. Bring 2 quarts of water and 1 tablespoon of salt to boil in a large pot. Add pasta, use package times as a guide, and boil until just tender. Drain, cover and set aside till chicken is ready.
  6. Transfer a portion of pasta to each plate. Place sauce and chicken on top of pasta and serve.

This was great! My boyfriend loved it. I used panko breadcrumbs, then added Italian type herbs to them. (Basil, parsley, oregano, etc.) This is a definite keeper!


I followed this recipe exactly and used regular (unseasoned) breadcrumbs. The chicken lacked flavor. Next time I will use seasoned breadcrumbs or add more seasonings to the regular breadcrumbs.


I love this recipe! It was so, so, so easy! The results were a delicious meal that you would think someone spent hours on. The only change we made was putting Italian Seasoning in the bread crumbs instead of just dried basil. We will DEFINITELY make this again.
