The Frugal Kitchen: Easy, Fast Chicken Parmesan

This is a surprisingly simple recipe, but packs a big taste punch.  I hope you enjoy it.


4 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or substitute boneless pork chops)
2 cups marinara
1/4 cup bread crumbs
grated parmesan

Coat the bottom of a casserole with 2 Tbsp. of olive oil and garlic.  Pound the thick side of the chicken breasts until both sides are the same thickness.  Lay chicken breasts in a single layer in the bottom of casserole pan.  Cover chicken with marinara.  Bake at 350-375 F for 25 minutes.  In a bowl mix bread crumbs with remaining olive oil until oil is evenly distributed; season bread crumbs with salt and pepper to taste.  Sprinkle bread crumbs over the top of chicken and sauce, then cover the top with a thin layer of parmesan cheese.  Bake another 5-10 minutes until top is browned.  Serve the chicken and sauce over spaghetti.

God bless,
