Easy Weeknight Dinner

Don't you love how one night I just post like 4 posts at once. I need to be better and posting on a regular basis. Here's an extremely easy weeknight dinner.

Chicken Parm
4 pieces chicken breast cut in 8 halves
salt, pepper, and garlic
italian bread crumbs
your favorite spaghetti sauce
mozzarella cheese
spaghetti noodles

First, get a nice long piece or saran wrap and put one of the chicken halves on on wrap and then cover with remaining wrap. With a meat cleaver pound out to where chicken is about 1/3 inch thick. Sprinkle on salt, pepper and garlic on chicken. Take pounded chicken and cover in bread crumbs. Do this to all the chicken until every piece is breaded.
In a large frying pan, use about 1-2 Tbs of olive oil and heat over medium heat. Cook chicken about 3 minutes on each side. Chicken will not be all the way done but this is what we want. Once your chicken is cooked put it in a 9x13 inch glass dish. Once all your chicken is laid at the bottom of the dish cover with your spaghetti sauce and cover it good. Top off with shredded mozzarella cheese.

Bake on 350 for 25 minutes. I like to broil the top for the last 3-5 minutes to brown the cheese and burn it a little. Serve over some noodles. We light the wheat pasta.
