Chicken Parmesan

So Chicken Parmesan was one of those meal that I always wanted to make, but never had a really good recipe for. Well, no longer. This is healthy and easy and ooooh so tasty. Originally a Sisters Cafe recipe, I use their "healthy" version. The sauce is what sets this Chicken Parmesan apart from other recipes. It's chunky and slightly sweet and absolutely bursting with the flavors of all the herbs! Even if you have a go-to Chicken Parmesan recipe, I hope you'll give this one a try!

Chicken Parmesan

For the sauce:
  • 2 Tb olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped (approx 1 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 cans Italian diced tomatoes
  • 1 Tb sugar
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
For the chicken:
  • 1-2 lbs chicken breasts
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Parmesan cheese (Or I just get the bag of Italian shredded cheese - it's Mozzarella, Parmesan, and Romano all together)
--For the sauce: Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until onions are tender and transparent. Add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer for 10 minutes.
--Meanwhile: Place the chicken in a 9x13 pan. Sprinkle the cheese on to your desired taste. Pour the sauce over, cover, and bake for 40 minutes at 350.
--Top with shredded Parmesan (not pictured because I forgot to do it until after I took a few bites!)
