Chicken Parmesan

16 oz jar spaghetti sauce
2 ounces dry bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a medium baking sheet. Pour egg into a shallow bowl. Place bread crumbs in separate bowl. Dip chicken into egg, then bread crumbs.

Place coated chicken on the baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes or until the juices run clear.

Pour 1/2 of the spaghetti sauce into a 7x11 baking dish. Place chicken over sauce, and cover with remaining sauce. Sprinkle mozzarella and Parmesan on top and return to the oven for 20 minutes.

What I did differently from the recipe:
First of all, I didn't measure ANYTHING. I probably used only a few ounces of spaghetti sauce, because we don't like too much with this recipe. I only did three breasts, so I just poured bread crumbs as needed. And I piled on the cheeses!!!

What I'll do differently next time:
Same as above - not as much sauce, more cheese, baby!!

Thumbs up! This recipe takes a long time to bake, but not make. It is so good and really filling.
