Chix Parm

Since I have recently learned that there are those of you out there who read my blog (and actually try my recipes...thank you!), here is another recipe. If you need something quick and easy and yummy, try this Chicken Parmesan. It's one of Robert's favorite meals so I think the hubbies (and kids) will enjoy it too!

Chicken Parmesan

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 egg plus 1/4 cup water
1 cup italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
6 slices mozzarella (I like the packaged mozz ball in the cheese section at Publix)
1 large jar tomato sauce of your choice

In a small bowl, mix the egg and water together. In another dish, mix bread crumbs and parm. Slice each breast in half lengthwise so that you have 6 very thin cutlets. Salt and pepper each. Dip each one in the egg mix, then bread crumb mixture.

Heat a small amount of olive oil in a large sautee pan and brown each piece until golden brown. Meanwhile, pour the tomato sauce in an 9x13 baking dish and heat the oven to broil. After browning all pieces of the chicken, place them in the dish on top of the sauce and top each with a thick slice of mozzarella.

Broil until cheese is melted and slightly brown on top. Serve immediately on top of whole grain penne or pasta of your choice, and don't forget the crunchy french bread (see my favorite brand below). And maybe a salad. Just maybe -- if you have more time than me :)

You can find this yummy bread in the freezer section at your local Publix.

She's a little bit country...

and a little over budget (on a LOT of things she (as in me) wants for her new kitchen)! So I have been tearing out pictures from magazines for about 5 years (ask Shanna) and putting them in a folder, which turned into a pretty binder, then got re-organized into categories, and now I realize what sink I want have to have because it's in 1/2 the kitchen photos. Here it is.

And then I saw this faucet.

And a little inspiration from my book...
