Pasta of your choosing (I choose gluten free sun dried tomato and basil bow tie pasta)

Chicken

Pulverized chicken (2)

Step 1: Clean your chicken breasts well, and place between two pieces of wax paper. Pulverize well on both sides to ensure chicken is as flat as possible. Also preheat your oven at 350 degrees at this time.

Eggs

Step 2: Crack your eggs into a large bowl and this will become your egg wash. Add all your seasonings to your eggs (Italian seasoning, dried thyme, oregano, onion, garlic power, salt and pepper), then add your chicken breasts to it ensuring they are completely saturated.

breadcrumbs

Ready for the oil

Step 3: Add your breadcrumbs to a large bowl and then place your chicken in the breadcrumbs ensuring they are completed coated. You can also use Italian or Parmesan croutons 🙂 From here your chicken is ready to be lightly browned in a frying pan with olive oil.

Step 6: Cut your tomato into small chunks. I usually used canned diced tomatoes and I had to improvise 🙂 Add them to a small saucepan with your spaghetti or marinara sauce and add 1 tablespoon of minced garlic. Once your allowed your sauce to cook on medium heat for :15 minutes its then time to add it to your chicken.

Step 7: I couldn’t find my baking pan so once my chicken finished cooking on either side, I placed the breaded breasts into a frying pan, added 2 tablespoons of sauce to each piece and topped it with a generous amount of low fat, skim 2% mozzarella cheese. From here allow your cheese to melt for about :10-:15…until cheese has a slight char to it or at least until its melted to your liking.

Step 8: Serve with your favorite vegetable or salad and thoroughly enjoy !

Bon Appetite !
