While scrolling through Pinterest last night, I came across this recipe and figured I would try it since I had the majority of ingredients on hand.
I love chicken parmesan but have never attempted to make it because I did not want to mess up a classic. This recipe was simple enough to help encourage me to try it on my own finally.
You can find the original recipe here but I tweaked it a bit so the following will be my recipe.
- 4 chicken breast halves
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup Crispy Fried Onions (I used the fried onions instead of the breadcrumbs since I didn’t have any.)
- 1 tablespoon of Kraft Seasoned Grated Parmesan Hot Pepper Trio
- 1 cup grated Parmesan
- 2 cups of Farfalle Pasta (AKA Bowtie Pasta)
- 2 cups marinara or spaghetti sauce, warmed
- ½ cup olive oil
Place water in a large pot and add a dash of salt and bring to a boil.
While water is beginning to boil, prep the chicken. I used a rolling pin to pound the chicken to be a little thinner. I sprinkled the pounded chicken on both sides with a little salt and Kraft Seasoned Grated Parmesan .
In a small bowl, whisk the eggs together.
In a separate bowl, stir together the Fried Onion Crisps (remember I used these instead of breadcrumbs so I had to crush them), 1/2 cup Parmesan, a pinch of salt & pepper.
First dip the chicken breast into the egg mixture and then into the Fried Onion Crisps mixture.
Once the chicken breast is fully coated, place into in a frying pan large enough to hold two chicken breast at the same time. Place burner over medium-high heat, warm the oil until it is shimmering.
Place the pasta in the boiling water and cook according to package directions or whatever your liking. Warm the sauce in a large saucepan.
Fry the chicken until crisp and golden brown and cooked through, turning once, about 5 minutes total. Transfer to paper towels on a sturdy plate to drain.
Drain the pasta and add to the warm sauce. Toss to coat.
Slice the chicken breasts into strips and transfer the spaghetti to a warm platter.
Top with the sliced chicken breasts and the remaining Parmesan.
