"Cheater" Chicken Parmesan

I got this recipe from my sister-in-law, Amy, who is not a lazy chef at all.  So I am always very skeptical when she says things are "easy."  But this one really is!  Enjoy.

  • 3 chicken breasts – cut into 6 cutlets
  • 1 can Hunt’s spaghetti sauce (I used traditional)
  • Provolone cheese slices (About 5)
  • Bread crumbs
  • Romano cheese –  about  ¾ -1 cup

Preheat oven to 350.

Season cutlets with salt and pepper.  Sautee chicken in skillet just to get crusty.  Place browned chicken in 9X13 casserole dish.  Deglaze skillet with a little chicken broth and sauce.  Cut provolone cheese in half and lay over cutlets.  Pour sauce from pan and remainder from the can over chicken.  Sprinkle the top with breadcrumbs and romano cheese.

Bake for 25 minutes, uncovered.  Serve with angel hair pasta. Yum!

Handy tip: To reheat leftovers, warm chicken and sauce in covered skillet on med/med-low heat.

What a great blog!!! I feel totally the same way about cooking. I have three small children, and I really don't like to cook but I have too, or we end up eating cereal, pancakes, and french toast the whole week. I need serious help! I like easy, fast, crock pot meals that I don't have to put a lot of energy into. Thanks for the recipes. I would love to follow this blog for more help!

This was INCREDIBLY easy and quite good. I wouldn't say it's a 10 or something that I would serve to snooty company--but to the missionaries or for a quick family meal, TOTALLY.
