chicken marinara recipe.

over the weekend i mentioned that we went to my aunt’s house… we had a great time and while i was there i wrote down one of her favorite recipes: chicken marinara.  i made it last night and it was delish – a true italian comfort meal.  here’s the recipe:

chicken marinara

  • 6 chicken breast halves
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 can marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 6 (1-oz) slices swiss cheese
  • 3 (1-oz) slices mozzarella cheese, cut in half
  • grated Parmesan
  • noodles (i used fresh linguine noodles)

preheat oven to 350*.  dip chicken breasts in egg and then dredge in bread crumbs.  melt butter in a skillet and cook the chicken for 2 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned.

mix marinara & half-and-half together.  pour all of the mixture except for 1/2 cup into the bottom of a 9×13″ pan.  set aside reserved sauce.  place the browned chicken on top of the sauce and bake for 25 minutes.  remove from oven and place 1 slice of each cheese on each chicken breast.  put 1 Tablespoon of reserved sauce over cheese.  sprinkle with Parmesan and return to oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.  serve over noodles.  enjoy!!
