Serves: 6
 
Ingredients
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to be about ½" thick
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tbs canola oil
  • 1 containers Buitoni Marinara Sauce
  • 1 lb spaghetti
  • 6¼" slices of mozzarella
  • 12 slices of pepperoni, cut into heart shapes
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Heat oil in a large frying pan, at medium high heat.
  3. Place flour in one shallow dish. In a separate shallow dish combine eggs and milk. In a third dish combine Panko breadcrumbs and parmesan.
  4. First dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess. Then dip in the egg mixture and lastly, coat with breadcrumbs. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces.
  5. Place chicken in hot oil and lightly brown both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Stick browned chicken in a large casserole dish, or 9x13 pan and cook for 25-30 minutes. Do not overcook. You want chicken to have an internal temperature of 165.
  7. While chicken is cooking, heat pasta sauce in microwave or sauce pan, and cook pasta according to package.
  8. Remove cooked chicken from oven and top with about ¼ cup warmed sauce, heart shaped mozzarella slice and pepperoni slices. You can decorate the chicken with cheese and pepperoni, however you'd like.
  9. Return pan to oven and cook for 2-3 minutes, until cheese is slighty melted.
  10. Serve over spaghetti and more sauce.
