Chicken Parmesan

A good sandwich just hits the spot sometimes. And I love a good chicken sandwich so I made up some chicken parmesan last week. Cheesy, slightly crunchy on the outside, and delicious. Of course, feel free to eat yours over noodles instead of on a sandwich.

4-6 pieces chicken, depending on size- I used tenderloin because that's what I had, breasts would work out better for size
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup Italian dressing
3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
Marinara sauce
1 cup Italian blend or mozarella cheese
bread for sandwichs, or noodles

Combine milk and Italian dressing in a plate. Lay out bread crumbs in another.

Cover chicken with saran wrap and pound flat. Pound gently or you will beat your chicken into small pieces.  You can see the hole I left in the bottom of the right-side piece below.


Place chicken in milk mixture and flip. Then coat both sides with bread crumbs.

Fry over medium heat in small amount of oil until chicken is browned. Cook in a 400 degree oven for 5-7 more minutes or until juices run clear.

Top with desired amount of marinara and cheese. Broil until cheese is browned.

Toast bread. See Micah's piece?

Top bread with chicken! Yum! I love that crusty cheese on the side!
