Chicken Parmesan

This chicken dish delivers...I usually prepare it when I am having guests and it always earns rave reviews. Its pretty easy and is great served over a bed of noodles. It would definitely qualify as comfort food- you really can't go wrong with this one.

Chicken Parmesan
Betty Crocker's Cookbook

7-8 chicken breasts
1 egg
1 Tbs. water
2/3 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 c. olive oil
jar of spaghetti sauce
Shredded Mozzarella cheese (about 2 cups)
Spaghetti Noodles

Heat olive oil in large 12-inch skillet. Mix water and egg well in small, flat-bottomed bowl. In separate similar bowl, mix the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Dip each chicken breast into the egg mix and then into the bread crumb mix and coat well. Place in skillet and cook 5 minutes (2 1/2 min. each side) until the chicken is golden brown, but not entirely cooked through. Place chicken into a baking dish and pour the jar of spaghetti sauce over the top. Sprinkle liberally with mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, or until sauce is bubbly and cheese is golden brown at edges. Serve over cooked noodles. Enjoy!
