Its no secret that I'm a fluffy mama. Everyone in my house loves to eat. I love to cook. So here is a recipe for what I made tonight. Chicken Parmesan. Although- this is a rough recipe. I rarely measure!
1 pound of chicken breast pounded thin
3/4 cup of flour
oregano (or Italian seasoning)
28oz can of crushed tomatoes (mine had basil in it)
1 large onion
6 cloves of garlic
pasta of your choice (I like spaghetti or fettuccine)
Heat up on medium heat about 1tbsp of butter and 1tbsp of olive oil in a deep skillet. You may need to add more after each batch of chicken depending on how big your pan is. After your chicken breast is pounded thin (I was feeling lazy and bought thin cut chicken cutlets) sprinkle both sides with the salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder then coat in flour. Cook the chicken until brown on each side. About 5 minutes a side.
Put the chicken aside. Dice the onions and garlic. Use the olive oil and butter that cooked with the chicken to sautee the onions and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the onions and garlic are transparent.
Add the crushed tomatoes, basil, and oregano to the onions and garlic. Heat until it starts to bubble. Add a liberal amount of Parmesan cheese. Cook for a couple more minutes. Add pieces of chicken back to the pan and top with mozzarella cheese and heat until cheese melts.
Serve over pasta!
