This top-rated chicken recipe makes a delicious, satisfying family meal with spaghetti and a simple salad.  The chicken is breaded, browned, then baked with spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 34 minutes

Total Time: 44 minutes

Yield: Makes 4 Servings


  • 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.

Easy enough a college student can do it!, Member g_lane92

This recipe was fantastic! I did it for my female college roommates and they loved it. I followed the recipe as is, however, I did season the chicken to my liking. I washed the chicken breasts in vinegar then seasoned it with minced garlic, oregano, salt & pepper. The olive oil while frying gave it a delicious taste. Tanks for the recipe!
