“I find this dish super sexy and quite fulfilling. It’s definetly one of my family’s favorite dishes. The prep time is around 15 minutes, and total cook time is around 1 hour. (again that’s my time) “
Ingredients you will need:
1 28oz Can of Crushed Tomatoes, 2 Gahhhlic Cloves, 1/2 diced White Onion, 2 tsp Parsley, 1 Tsp Oregano, 4 Boneless skinless Chicken Breasts, 6 cups of Italian Bread Crumbs, 6 Cups White flour, Salt/Pepper, 2 cups Grated Parmesan, Shredded mozzarella cheese, or grated, 4 Eggs, 4 cups Milk, Vermicelli noodles.
Take each chicken breast and place between 2 pieces of Plastic wrap. Start beatin’ until you reach a semi thick filet. (Stress Reliever). Place to the side. Mix bread crumbs, flour and parmesan together. In a separate bowl, mix eggs and milk. Dredge chicken in the dry mix, coating each side, and then give it a bath in the egg wash, and then back into the dry mix. This gives it an extra crunchy coating. Lay each chicken breast on wax paper. Time to start the sauce! Finely chop your garlic, and onion. Sautee with a dash of olive oil, on medium heat in a skillet. This usually takes 2-3 minutes. Once done, take the can of crushed tomatoes and pour into a pot. Add the garlic and onion mixture, add your seasonings, and put on simmer for about 20 minutes. Time to fry! Take each chicken breast (coated) and start cooking in Olive oil or whatever oil you have on hand, on low-medium heat. I found that each side takes about 6-7 minutes, giving it the crispy golden brown color. Check your sauce! Should be almost to a slow bubble. Grab a casserole dish, (usually 12×9 Pyrex). Spoon some sauce on the bottom of the dish. Once your chicken is done, add each piece to the dish. Pour more sauce over each chicken breast, top with mozzarella cheese. Bake at 425 for about 30 minutes or when the cheese is all melty and gooey. In the meantime, start boiling your vermicelli noodles. I go for the al-dente taste, but its your dish, boil to your liking. Strain noodles, and toss with some leftover Italian seasonings, and a tad of olive oil. Place chicken over noodles, garnish with parsley and WA LA! You have an amazing and sexy dish that your family will love! HINT I always pair it with a simple green salad, and a good crusty bread.
