Family Dinner – Baked Chicken Mozzarella Recipe
Chicken Mozzarella Recipes. As a busy mom and wife, I am always looking for easy and time-saving chicken recipes, and this one fits all of those ‘mom’ requirements. Most of all people love eating chicken. I think you will very agree with this statement, right?
What I like about this recipe is the fact that it is made with everyday ingredients that you most likely have on hand. To save time, I will make step 1 the day before and then refrigerate it in a container. The next day, I will repeat the step 1 ingredients in the microwave for 1-2 minutes and then proceed with step 2. I do this so that I am not spending an hour in my kitchen on a busy work or school night.
Chicken Mozzarella Recipe
Step 1 Ingredients:
2 1/2 lbs. of boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce or spaghetti sauce
3/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves
Cut chicken breasts in half and remove skin. In a small bowl, beat eggs. Dip meat into eggs and then dip into dried breadcrumbs. Heat butter in a large 12″ round frying pan until melted. Place breasts in the frying pan over medium heat and simmer until it has browned on all sides. Stir in the tomato sauce and basil; reduce heat. Cover and cook over low heat until done about 30-40 minutes.
Step 2 Ingredients:
1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 teaspoon paprika
In a small bowl, combine the Mozzarella cheese with the paprika until blended.
Arrange chicken pieces in an ungreased 9″ square baking dish along with the rest of the ingredients from step 1. Sprinkle the cheese mixture on top. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake in your oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese has melted and is bubbly around the edges.
