Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan

2 cups spaghetti sauce
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 slices Swiss cheese
1 egg

Heat a few tablespoons of margarine in a pan over medium high heat.  Place egg in a shallow bowl; beat slightly.  Place breadcrumbs, Cajun seasoning, and Parmesan cheese in another shallow bowl.  Dip each chicken breast in the egg, then coat well with breadcrumbs on both sides.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown chicken breasts on each side for 6 minutes, or until cooked through.  Add more margarine to pan as needed.

Place browned chicken breasts in a baking dish coated with cooking spray.  Spoon a few tablespoonfuls of spaghetti sauce over each chicken breast. Top each breast with a Swiss cheese slice.  Bake for 10 - 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.  Serve remaining sauce over pasta.


  1. Looks pretty good! I prefer to make my own tomatosauce though and use mozarella instead of Swiss cheese. To me, it seems more italian then.
    Good recipe though! And always a family favourite :)

  2. Oh yes, I definitely make my own sauce. My grandmother would disown me if I didn't. :) The Swiss cheese is just my little twist on the recipe.

  3. I was intimidated by Chicken Parm, and have never made it before, but decided to try your recipe. I made it today and am thrilled by both how yummy and easy it was to prepare. Thanks for posting!
