20- Minute Chicken Parmesan

            20- Minute Chicken Parmesan

Served atop a plateful of pasta, this saucy Chicken Parmesan makes a hearty entrée.

4 skinned and boned chicken breast halves
1 large egg, lightly beaten
½ cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
2 T butter, melted
1 ¾ cups spaghetti sauce
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 T grated Parmesan cheese
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to ¼ inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin.  Dip chicken in egg, and dredge in breadcrumbs.
Cook chicken in butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until browned on both sides.  Spoon spaghetti sauce over chicken; bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes.
Sprinkle with cheese and parsley; cover and simmer 5 minutes or until cheeses melt.  Yield: 4 servings.
