Italian chicken with penne pasta

Tonights dinner is a favorite here. Italian chicken. It's so easy to make and takes almost no time, so it's a quick dinner for anyone to make, especially after a long day or work.


2 eggs beaten
bread crumbs

First place the chicken in a bowl, and add some milk. I use about 1 cup. I keep moving the chicken about every 5 minutes, so i know all pieces have been soaked several minutes in the chicken.

In one bowl place flour, in another place the egg, and the third bowl, place the bread crumbs. Into the eggs, is where I add the spices. I normally just add the italian seasoning. if you don't have that one that combines them, add some oregano, basil, and crushed bay.

Take the chicken from the milk, and dip in the flour, then the egg, then the bread crumbs. Heat a skillet with some olive oil, and place the chicken in the oil.

Brown the chicken on both sides. Only need about a minute or two on each side. Then transfer to a cooling rack. Place the rack into a 9x13 pan. Add some water to the bottom of the pan to keep the chicken moist. Place in the over at 350 about 45 minutes.

When you place the chicken in the oven, make some penne pasta. Place the pasta once made into a 9x13 pan. With about 10-15 minutes left in baking on the chicken, transfer the chicken to the top of the pasta and place back in the oven.

Once the chicken is done, place some mozzarella cheese on top, and pop back in the oven to melt.

I will serve this with some winter squash, and mashed sweet potato. Will make a perfect meal.
