Stuffed Chicken Parmigiana

I’ve always loved chicken parmigiana, and this is a little bit of a twist on it! It’s delicious and fairly easy to prepare, as long as you have some delicious marinara sauce to go with it!

Ingredients:

2 chicken breasts

1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

Flour for dredging

1-2 eggs, beaten

1 c breadcrumbs

1 c. marinara sauce

1/2 parmesan cheese

2 T. basil

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350.

Cut a hole into each chicken breast large enough to hold the mozzarella cheese.

Stuff the mozzarella cheese inside the cavity.

Dredge the chicken breast in the flour, then pass it through the eggs, finishing up with the breadcrumbs.

Heat some olive oil in a pan until the pan is very hot. Add the chicken breasts and brown each side well.

Place some tomato sauce in the bottom of a casserole dish. Place the browned chicken breasts on top of the tomato sauce. Spoon the rest of the sauce over each breast. Top with some Parmesan cheese and sliced basil.

Cook in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the chicken breasts are cooked through.
