"I received this recipe several years ago from a family member who swore it was a great romantic meal. She was right. My husband asks me to make this meal every time we have a date night. The quantity of ingredients look intimidating, but don't let them fool you. It's easy and delicious! The whipping cream gives it a creamy texture that you just can't get enough of!" — Jules203

1 (14.5 ounce) can
diced tomatoes with juice
salt and pepper to taste
fine dry bread crumbs
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3 (5 ounce)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
shredded Mozzarella cheese
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
This is an easy and delicious dish.
I can only give this three stars because the sauce was absolutely terrible!!! (sorry, no offense). We find can tomatoes are so bitter they are awful. What I did was make the chicken as it says (but without the egg due to allergy) then instead of the sauce I served with Ragu jar speghetti sauce and then the moz cheese and speghetti noodles; then it was a 5/5.
I made this last night. It is delicious and easy! We liked it better than any of the other chicken parmigiana recipes I have tried! The quick tomato sauce is excellent. I pureed it a bit with my immersion blender, but the texture is a personal preference. The taste is what counts! I used homemade bread crumbs for the breading. I pounded out the chicken breast fillets a bit, and they were done in the 10 minutes stated. I liked not having to transfer it to the oven to complete the cooking and melt the cheeses. The cheese melted beautifully over the hot tomato sauce while the chicken was "resting". My husband raved! I'm throwing out all my other chicken parmigiana recipes. This one is it!!
This was so good! My sauce came out a little thinner than I would have liked, so I added a can of tomato paste; that made it perfect. Also, I adjusted it a bit so I wouldn't have to do anything when I came home from work. Rather than cook the chicken all the way through, I just browned it in the frying pan. Then, I transferred it to a casserole dish, covered it with the sauce, and topped it with the mozzarella cheese. I then covered it and baked it at 350 for about an hour and a half. This worked out great for my situation.
Im not a great fan of Chicken Parmigiana but my husband is. I used this recipe last night and it is absolutely wonderful. The only trouble was i kept taking a spoonfull of the sauce whilst waiting for the chicken to cook. I will definately use this again :D
Awesome recipe. Made this for my wife on our anniversary. Im a chef by trade and I think I'm going to use the idea for the sauce at work. thanks a ton.
Me likes !!!!!
The only change: up the spices in the sauce ( at least 2t garlic, add some basil and don't forget good ol' salt 'n peppa) and the breading. I also used a bit more cream in the sauce.
I love that it doesn't need an oven or broiler. Have to admit that I sometimes give this a zap under the grill to help if I use sliced Mozzarella.
Serve with good, crunchy garlic bread.... hmmm what's for supper??
Gave this recipe a try and was very pleased. Took the hint from Junebug and pounded the chicken a bit and also replaced the sugar with a single packet of Splenda then hit it with the blender. The sauce flavor is quite similar to a traditional marinara sauce I found at Trader Joes. A jar of the sauce makes this a quick and easy recipe.
