Chicken Parmigiana

We don't really have a recipe to follow, more like directions, but we like this, and our kids like it so its a hit for us.

We use just 1 chicken breast to feed our family but for those of you with bigger families you might want 2 or 3. Once you pound it though you might be surprised on how little chicken you really need.

Put boneless, skinless chicken breast in large zip lock bag. Take a hammer and lightly pound to flatten it out (get it as thin as you can), then sprinkle some flour into the bag with the chicken and try to spread it around.

In a square bowl or pan dump some bread crumbs along with some Parmesan cheese (freshly grated), some Italian seasoning and mix together, we don't have a measurement, just eyeball it for however much chicken you have. Add an egg (or two depending on how much chicken) to another bowl or pan. Take chicken and dip well into the egg then dip into the bread crumbs and Parmesan mix till completely covered on both sides.

Then place chicken in a greased baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, then flip over for 15 minutes. After it has been baked we like to broil it to get it a little crispy on the edges.

While the chicken is baking cook up some thin spaghetti noodles and spaghetti sauce and place over chicken, then sprinkle on a hefty amount of mozzarella cheese. Its pretty good, and pretty easy. Hopefully this makes sense.
