Cooking Basics..Everything you need to know about cooking

{July 7, 2010}   Chicken Parmesan

Tonight I made chicken parmesan! Yes chicken parmesan! Very simple, but oh so delicious! I had chicken at home and my mom told me. She asked if I felt like cooking, because she wouldn’t mind doing the cooking. What type of question is that, how could I not feel like cooking? Of course I told her, what type of question is that! She laughed and I came home and whipped up dinner in  about 30 minutes, no problem!

Usually, when I cook chicken parm, I bake it. This time, I was ready to do something different! So I cooked the breaded chicken in olive oil. It was SO good like that! It tasted like fried chicken, but Italian style. So, enough of me telling you how good this chicken was, it’s time for me to give you the recipe so you can make it for your wonderful families!

First step: Season 4 chicken breasts with 1 tsp garlic salt, 1 tsp season-all, and 1 tsp dried oregano. (Sorry, didn’t take a picture)

Second step: Now whisk one egg and 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes. In another bowl, combine 1 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs. Dip chicken breasts in egg, then dip in chicken.

Third step: In a pool of olive oil, put chicken breasts down, and cook for about 7 minutes (meduim heat).Right before flipping sprinkle with desired amount of parmesan cheese.

Step Four: In a small skillet, saute 1/2 cup shitake mushrooms in olive oil for 7 minutes, or until tender. (Sorry, no picture)

Step 5: Place chicken breasts on a plate. TURN THE HEAT TO LOW. Now add 1 cup marinara sauce and shitake mushrooms.

Step 6: Add chicken breasts and simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 7: Serve with pasta and sprinkle with parmesan cheese!

Bon appetit! 🙂
