Whats for dinner tonight-Baked Chicken Parmesan

Whats for dinner tonight.......

Baked Chicken Parmesan (adapted from Skinnytaste):
Yields 8 servings
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 8 thin sliced chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup Italian style breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.
In a small bowl, combine breadcrumbs and Parmesan. Working one at a time, brush butter on each chicken breast and dredge in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing to coat.
Place onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Gently flip and bake until the crust is golden and the chicken is completely cooked through, about 5 minutes more.
Remove from oven; spoon 1 tablespoon marinara on each chicken breast and sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons mozzarella. Place into oven and bake until cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.
Serve immediately with spaghetti and additional marinara, if desired.
