Spaghetti Chicken Parmesan

"I like to make this yummy recipe when I have extra spaghetti sauce on hand," comments Margie Eddy from Ann Arbor, Michigan. "The herbed coating on the tender chicken gets nice and golden," she adds.

    I made this recipe tonight for dinner and it was delicious! Two minor changes: I had more chicken to cover (4) 6 oz. chicken breasts, thin sliced, so I used both 1/2 cup Parmesan and 1/2 cup Italian Bread Cups in my dry mix, and, 2. I substituted 2 Tbsp. of Italian Seasoning in place of the basil and oregano. The breasts were golden and juicy. I made extra sauce because we like extra sauce on our chicken and spaghetti. It is officially my go-to Chicken Parmesan recipe'.

    Yummy and easy to make. I ended up doubling the sauce because we like things saucy. The chicken stuck to the pan a lot and lost quite a bit of coating so I think I would cook it in the oven next time.

    Very delicious recipe! I used Panko Italian seasoned bread crumbs, and still added the extra seasonings per the recipe. In place of spaghetti noodles, I used my vegetable spiralizer to make zucchini noodles.

    Served this for company last night and it was really moist and good. The only thing I did different was to dust the chicken in flour before dipping in egg and rolling in bread mix. I used a can of Traditional spaghetti sauce "as is" and served the remaining sauce in a pitcher to be used over the pasta (just plain old spaghetti) if desired. The only other thing needed for the meal was a salad and dessert. Sure had raves. Will definitely serve this again.

    This was very good. I did make two adjustments though....I flattened the chicken so it was crispier and added some heat with red pepper flakes. :)

    This was good, but my family prefers the version I've been making for years.
