Shop the Sale: Chicken Parmesan


Does your family have a few tried-and-true favorite weeknight dinners that you find yourself going back to again and again…because you know everyone likes it and no one will complain?

I do try to introduce new flavors and recipes to our family table as much as I can, but when time is short and I’m racing through the grocery aisles for something to cook that night for dinner, I automatically return to our list of Taco Soup, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry, and Parmesan Chicken. They may not be the most exciting meals you can imagine, but they are family-pleasing main dishes that help ensure a successful weeknight dinner.

My family likes spicy food, so I add a bit of red pepper flakes to our marinara sauce when heating. All you need to add is a green salad and some hot, crusty French bread. The best part of this meal is that the chicken, spaghetti, Parmesan cheese and marinara sauce are all on sale this week at your local Brookshire’s!

Chicken Parmesan with Spicy Spaghetti Marinara

Ingredients:
1 clove garlic, minced
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 cup dried bread crumbs
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 Tbs dried Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 lb skinless, boneless, chicken breasts, patted dry with paper towels and cut into 2 x 2 –inch chunks
1 lb spaghetti, cooked al dente
1 (24 oz) jar Classico Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce
1-2 tsp red pepper flakes

Directions:
Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium-sized bowl, combine garlic with melted butter. In another medium-sized bowl mix together the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, Italian seasoning and pepper. Dip chicken breasts first into garlic butter, then into crumb mixture to coat well, pressing with fingers as needed.

Place coated chicken pieces into baking dish. Drizzle with any leftover garlic butter. Bake uncovered 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.

While chicken is cooking, heat the pasta sauce along with the red pepper flakes if desired.

To serve, divide cooked spaghetti over 4-6 plates (depending on your family’s appetites!) and top with chicken pieces and a ladle of warm pasta sauce.
