Classic Chicken Parmigiana

WIN_20160425_20_13_06_Pro (2)

It is an American~Italian Classic Dish loved by so many including myself and my family! I use boneless/skinless half Chicken Breasts (I do not bread and fry-because I do not like fried in oil foods)! Add the chicken breasts into a baking dish, add tomato or marinara (chunky) sauce-I use a homemade tomato sauce, add one teaspoon oregano, one teaspoon chopped fresh parsley, 1 cup grated parmesan, 1-1/4 cup Shredded mozzarella. Cover with aluminum foil and bake @ 375 F for 35 minutes, remove foil and continue baking 5-6 minutes longer.

I like to serve this with Garlic Bread and a garden fresh mixed green salad. Not only is it a delicious dish, it is economical to make.

Hope you enjoy!
