Chicken Parmesan

Check out the past Cooking for One posts if you missed any of them. Marie Claire continues with more great ideas for cooking with a recipe for chicken parm. This is is great to have and freeze for the rest of the week.

Chicken Parmesan
2 pounds chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 large eggs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 cups jarred tomato sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400 F.

In a medium bowl, lightly beat eggs. In another bowl, combine parmesan, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Dip chicken strips in egg, then in breadcrumb mixture. Place on a baking sheet.

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Add chicken strips and brown about 3 minutes per side.

Spread one cup tomato sauce in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Place chicken on top of sauce then top chicken with remaining sauce and mozzarella. Bake 10 minutes, until cheese is completely melted.
