My family loves pasta and anything covered in pasta sauce, so I had a pretty good feeling they would like this.
1/3 cup fine dry Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 large eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (9-ounce) package pasta
1 jar pasta sauce
4 fresh basil sprigs (optional)
Preheat oven to 375Â°F.
Lightly grease baking dish that is big enough for all of the chicken breasts.
Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese in shallow dish.
Dip chicken in eggs, then cover with bread crumb mixture.
Arrange chicken is prepared baking dish. Drizzle with oil.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink in center.
Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake for an additional 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain. Toss pasta with sauce; divide among plates.
Top with chicken. Garnish with basil.
