Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan

1 lb chicken boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I like to cut each breast into 2-3 smaller pieces
1.5 cups plain breadcrumbs
canola oil
1 package mozzerella slices
1 jar spaghetti sauce (I like Muir Glen tomato basil)
fresh basil, optional
1 lb uncooked spaghetti

Place breadcrumbs in pie plate and coat each chicken breast in crumb mixture. Heat canola oil in heavy skillet and when hot, brown the breaded breasts. Drain well on paper towels. Place chicken breasts in 9x13 baking dish, and cover with mozzerella slices and fresh chopped basil. Pour jar of spaghetti sauce over chicken and cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees. Cook spaghetti while chicken is baking, and serve chicken over hot, cooked noodles.

*Suggested sides--green salad and french bread.
