Chicken Parmesan for Two

What You’ll Need:

1/3 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups pasta sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

What To Do:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs, flour, salt, and cayenne pepper; set aside.

Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and using a meat mallet or rolling pin, flatten to 1/4-inch thickness. Dip each chicken breast in egg, then coat with bread crumb mixture.

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil; add chicken and cook 3 minutes on each side, or until golden.

Place chicken in a single layer in baking dish. Top evenly with pasta sauce and cheeses.

Bake 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
