a really easy chicken parm.

Friday, January 6, 2012

i've made this at least three times in the last three weeks.  so, ya know, once a week.  
steve declares, "this is restaurant good" when i make it.  what does that say of my other dinners?
we don't go there.  but what i do know--it's yummy.  and really easy.  i skip the breading that chicken parm can sometimes have and that cuts the time a lot.  give it a try.

| ingredients |
serves 4

4-6 thin sliced chicken breasts
italian seasonings (i have a mix, but a mixture of salt, pepper, oregano, basil would be fine)
tomato sauce (i loove the three cheese from TJ's)
1 lb. of pasta, any kind
mozzarella cheese
pecorino romano cheese (or parm but i like the first better)

| directions |

sauté your chicken on medium heat in olive oil.  as it browns, keep turning it and seasoning both sides.  this is where it's good if you have thin chicken breasts because you can trust that they're cooked all the way through without cutting them up.  otherwise, cut them up and have chicken pieces instead.
once cooked through, add the tomato sauce right over the chicken and let that simmer on low heat for 10 minutes or so.  then add the mozzarella cheese, and the pecorino romano to the top of that and put the whole pan in the oven (we use all-clad so we can but make sure that it's ok for your entire pan to be in the oven).  broil it for 10 minutes or so till your cheese is golden brown.  serve over pasta!

  2. Can I suggest you a secret :-) It looks delicious, but the best way to make this kind of meal is:
    - if your pasta have to cook 10minutes, cook it for 5.
    - then put your tomato and cheese souce (it has to be a lot) over pasta and mix all together
    - on the top add more pecorino romano a little bit more of mozzarella, and put it in the oven for other 5/8 minutes
    - broil it for 5 minutes or so

    In this way your pasta will finish to cook in the oven, and everything will be creamy inside and crispy on the top!!

  19. Sounds like my hubs who often says, "this is good.....for home food.". Seriously, dude, just say it is good. Period. I get that we aren't comparing it to professionally trained chefs.

  25. So I made this the other night because I had nothing else planned and knew I would get major points for having something ready on the table (it has been ages since THAT happened) when my husband got home from overtime.
    It was a hit.
    Many thanks, my friend.
