easy chicken parm

20 Mar

Holy mother did it rain last night! And by rain, I mean that we camped out in the living room because it literally sounded like the entire second story of our house was going to fly away Dorothy-style.

Before the madness, I made it into the kitchen and just happened to find everything I needed for chicken parmesan & baked asparagus so I threw it together and the result was yummmmy!

Like my fancy paper plates? Me too.

Easy Chicken Parmesan

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Italian bread crumbs (I used Progresso)

pasta sauce (just use your favorite!)

4 slices of mozzarella cheese

chopped basil

salt & pepper 

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (how the f do you make a degree symbol?!). Cover a baking sheet in aluminum foil.

Rinse the chicken breasts and pat dry. Pour the breadcrumbs on to a paper plate (or any flat surface.. I’m not even sure it needs to be flat) and after seasoning the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, cover those bad boys in bread crumbs! Place the chicken on the baking sheet and throw it in the oven for about 35 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink, flipping halfway through and adding breadcrumbs to any bald spots.

Once the chicken is cooked, pull the tray out of the oven and cover each chicken breast with a heaping spoonful of sauce (enough to cover the whole piece). Add a slice of mozzarella and put the tray back in the oven for about 4-5 minutes, or until the cheese is all melty. Sprinkle with chopped basil and voila!

Baked Asparagus

1/2 lb to 1 lb of asparagus

butter

salt & pepper

aluminum foil

I actually got this idea from Charlie’s sister Amanda… she made asparagus like this on the grill and it was soo good, so I figured I’d give it a shot in the oven. Get a long sheet of aluminum foil, and place the asparagus in the center of it. Throw in a couple tablespoons of butter, and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Fold the foil over the asparagus loosely (but make sure it’s closed all the way!), and throw it in the oven. I just put mine in with the chicken and took it out a little early, so 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes. Enjoy!
