"Using mozzarella cheese, chicken broth, garlic and onion, this is a variation of Chicken Parmesan created for my son, who doesn't like the standard version. This dish goes fast in our home, served with hot cooked pasta, salad and crusty Italian bread." — Ami Knighton

I make this for my sons also! I usually just pan fry the chicken, that I have seasoned with italian seasoning, salt, pepper and garlic powder, in olive oil. After this is complete I remove chicken and keep warm. I heat the spaghetti sauce through (omitting the broth step and also the onions). I place the chicken breast on the cooked spaghetti, then place the spaghetti sauce on top and then the final touch is sprinking mozzarella cheese on top. If you add the cheese quickly to the hot spaghetti sauce it will melt on its' own. My son also likes for me to sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top of the spaghetti noodles prior to placing the chicken on top.
There was nothing particularly special about this recipe. It just spaghetti with chicken. I added 1/4 cup of garlic and I couldn't taste any of the garlic or onions. I also added about half the amount of cheese which gave it a hint of cheese. This recipe seems like the start of a really good recipe.
This recipe is absolutely delicious and a very simple variation of a family favorite. The only thing I did was add Italian flavored breadcrumbs to thicken the "gravy" towards the end of cooking. That made it taste even more authentic! Also, I found that using frozen chicken tenderloins did away with any problem with chicken not being tender. Is now on top of family's most-requested list!
My husband and children loved this. I made the major of it while trying to sooth and breastfeed my 9 week old--easy! Thanks!
My husband and I both loved this. It was a great way to use my homemade meatless spaghetti sauce. One change I made was to pound the chicken down some so it would cook faster. This is a delicious and easy weeknight dinner.
Wow! Another one I would give 10 stars to. This was absolutely delicious. The chicken was so tender from the chicken broth. I used Ragu and it was perfect in the dish. This is a definate keeper in my house!
So good! I didn't use onions, and just really spiced up my chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and onion and garlic powder. I also added basil to the top of the chicken and under the mozzarella. This was very tasty and very easy! Thanks!
This was very good! Chicken stayed moist and tasted amazing. I did add some italian seasoning. I think next time I will not heat up the sauce in the pan with the chicken as it made it harder to through over noodles (either that or heat some extra sauce up on the side).
