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:
- 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!!
