School is officially out for the summer. What better way to celebrate than with a classic Italian dinner? Chicken Parmesan is a favorite of all four of us so it seemed like a perfect way to kick of the summer of 2106.
As an added bonus, the green beans and sweet basil in my garden have started to take off - thanks to a couple of rainy days. I love "shopping" in my garden for fresh herbs and vegetables. They make my meals even more special.
Sauce Chicken and Pasta
2 Tablespoons oil 4 boneless chicken breasts
1 clove garlic 8 ounces spaghetti
1/4 teaspoon oregano 1 egg
pinch of red pepper flakes 1 Tablespoon flour
28 ounce can crushed tomatoes 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon sugar 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
3/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tablespoons fresh basil
Transfer chicken to foil lined baking sheet and sprinkle with mozzarella.
Broil until cheese is melted and beginning to brown.
Top each piece of chicken with 2 Tablespoons of sauce and 1 Tablespoon fresh basil.
Here's to a delicious kickoff to the summer of 2016. Summer is sure to go by quickly so I'm savoring every dinner that we eat together as a family of four.
