Easy Chicken Parmesan
My kids love to eat all the things, but pasta is their favorite thing to eat. They’re all in high school, and athletes, so I have to triple or quadruple most recipes in this phase of life.
It works out well that they love pasta SO MUCH, because I can buy it in bulk at our local Warehouse Club (Sam’s Club), and not break the budget. I try to plan the pasta meals around their game schedules so they can “carb load” the night before. Did I mention they can EACH eat over a pound of pasta? Yeah.
This Easy Chicken Parmesan recipe is for one pound of pasta, but I quadruple it and use four pounds of pasta. With no leftovers. I recently picked up some industrial sized pots at Sam’s Club, and stowed away my normal sized pots for use when we’re empty nesters, LOL 🙂
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare box of angel hair or spaghetti pasta, according to package directions.
Combine bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in small bowl.
Beat egg whites in another bowl.
Dip chicken in egg whites then coat with bread crumbs.
Lay chicken in a roasting pan and top with marinara sauce (I can and use a jar of my Homemade Sunday Sauce) and mozzarella cheese.
Bake for about 35 minutes.
Place single serving of cooked pasta on a plate.
Top with baked chicken breast
Serve and enjoy!
