Cooking Club: Easy Chicken Parmesan

Let's be honest-lately I have failed miserably with the Cooking Club. Sure I always post the recipes for all of you to enjoy but I think I have made only about half of the recipes the last couple of months. They have looked good-I just have been lazy/tired/ busy... one or all of the three. So when it came time to pick my own recipe this month I knew I wanted to pick something easy. Nothing says easy like Easy Chicken Parmesan.

Easy Chicken Parmesan
Found on by Colleen Haass


  • 4 boneless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 slices mozzarella cheese, or more
  • 1 jar (16 oz) spaghetti sauce
  • Parmesan cheese


Whisk together the egg and milk. Dip the chicken breasts in milk and egg mixture and then in bread crumbs. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken in the hot oil on both sides until golden, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Set chicken in a baking dish.

Slice 8 pieces of mozzarella cheese and put two on each chicken breast. Pour 1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce over all. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and a little more mozzarella and bake at 350° for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until bubbly. Serve with spaghetti, garlic bread and a nice green salad.

My Changes: I made it even easier by using premade breaded chicken patties which made me able to skip the entire first paragraph of instructions. So easy that way. Rachel did bread the chicken-but she said as she was making it she told her kids she was making giant chicken nuggets and the kids loved the dinner.
