Here is what I am preparing for dinner tonight. It is a simple recipe that everyone loves.
2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups Italian bread crumbs
1 jar spaghetti sauce
grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Dip chicken in egg, then into the bread crumbs to coat thoroughly. In a large skillet, brown the chicken on both sides in the vegetable oil. Drain on paper towels.
Pour 1 cup sauce in a 9 x 13 inch pan. Place the chicken in the pan and top with the remaining sauce. Sprinke with the cheeses. Bake for 30 minutes. Serves 8.
I will be serving the chicken over plain buttered pasta. Side dishes will be steamed broccoli, garlic bread and a tossed salad.
For dessert we are having brownie pudding.
1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 3/4 cups hot water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together the first 5 ingredients; add milk, vegetable oil and vanilla; mix til smooth. Pour into a greased 8 x 8 inch square pan. Combine the remaining ingredients; pour over batter. Bake for about 40 minutes. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
