Chicken Parmesan

I have always loved chicken parmesan but I have found that most recipes are pretty bland. So I decided to create my own:

2-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (depending on your family size)
1 cup bread crumbs (I used italian)
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
2 egg white; slightly beaten
thin spaghetti
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
spaghetti sauce

Mix together the bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, flour, and crushed red pepper

place the chicken breasts in between 2 pieces of plastic wrap

flatten down to about a 1/4 inch thickness

Final product

place the egg white in a bowl

dip the chicken in the egg whites

coat with the bread crumbs

dip again in the egg whites

and again in the bread crumbs

pour olive oil into a skillet and place on medium heat

cook the chicken in the skillet for 3-4 minutes on each side

Place in a baking dish

pour approximately 1/4 cup of sauce onto each chicken breast

add 1/2 cup of cheese to the top of each chicken breast. Bake on 350 degrees for 20 minutes until the cheese is completely melted and slightly bubbly.

serve the chicken with cooked pasta
