Whip It Up Challenge-Chicken Parmesan

Tonight I made my last Whip It Up Challenge recipe! This one almost didn't make it because I was at work and then scrapping all day and then...well that will be another post.

Anyway, at 8:30 tonight I finally got around to cooking dinner. I made Chicken Parmesan because that is Adam's preferred dish at any restaurant that we go to. So I guess I am trying the recipe of my favorite Chef at...Olive Garden...whoever he may be!

I Googled "Easy Chicken Parmesan Recipe" and Google of course answered me! I tried this recipe and am very satisfied!

Chicken Parmesan

4 boneless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
seasoned bread crumbs
2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
8 slices mozzarella cheese, or more
1 jar (16 oz) spaghetti sauce
Parmesan cheese

Whisk together the egg and milk.
Dip the chicken breasts in milk and egg mixture and then in bread crumbs.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Brown the chicken in the hot oil on both sides until golden, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
Set chicken in a baking dish.
Slice 8 pieces of mozzarella cheese and put two on each chicken breast.
Pour 1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce over all.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and a little more mozzarella and bake at 350° for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until bubbly.
Serve with spaghetti, garlic bread and a nice green salad.

*I also just made spaghetti with Alfredo sauce and frozen Texas toast to go with it!

1. Was the recipe easy to follow?
Super Easy!

2. Did the dish taste good?
That is what I hear.

3. Would you make it again?
Surely

4. Leftover quotient?
Considering only one person will eat it, there are probably 3 or 4 more meals left.

5. Any additions/edits to the recipe?
Yes, because I didn't do any grocery shopping and just used what I had.
-I didn't have an egg so I just mixed some vegetable oil with the milk before I breaded the chicken.
-I used shredded Mozzarella because that is what I had.
-I used boneless skinless chicken breast tenderloins because I accidentally bought those instead of the normal breasts...so they were smaller.

6. Adam's thoughts?
"This is really good. I ate it all didn't I?"

Yeah, I totally failed at Whip It Up. Two weeks ago, I just didn't get to it. Last week I forgot to submit my link. This week, well I didn't get to it again either. Oh well.

You dinner looks awfully tasty! I think I might have to try it.
