This is a very simple, yet delicious dish that I came up with tonight for dinner.
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3/4 c Italian style seasoned bread crumbs
1 c grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp pepper
1/2 c olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
Rigatoni, cooked according to package directions
Spaghetti sauce (you can use your homemade sauce or a canned sauce)
Cut chicken into strips (not too thin). Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place a large greased cookie sheet in the oven for about 5 minutes until hot. Put olive oil & garlic in a large dish. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds. Mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese & pepper in a large dish. Dip chicken in olive oil/garlic mixture. Then coat in the bread crumb/Parmesan cheese mixture. Place on hot cookie sheet. Continue the breading until all chicken has been coated. Bake for about 15 minutes until the bottom side of chicken is crispy. Turn chicken over & bake an additional 5 minutes or so until the other side gets crispy. Serve chicken with rigatoni & sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
