This is one meal that brings my kids running home for Mom's cooking. Their absolute favorite meal! :) Now it is also my grandkids favorite too. Good old comfort food!


  • Italian Sauce
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 green pepper, cut up
  • 4 garlic cloves, cut in half
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cans crushed tomatoes (28 oz), plus 1 can of water
  • 1 can tomato paste (12 oz), plus 1 can of water
  • 4 large fresh basil leaves, sliced thin
  • seasonings to taste... Italian seasoning, oregano, minced garlic, Old Bay Seasoning, black pepper, salt, bay leaves, and dried basil 2-3 tablespoons of sugar & parsley and 1/3 cup of red wine. Add a 1/3 of a cup of grated Parmesan cheese. Start by using a
  • 2-3 Tbsp parsley
  • 1/3 cup red wine
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2-3 Tbsp sugar
  • Chicken Parmesan
  • 2 pkg Perdue chicken breast filets, thin sliced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 beaten eggs
  • 3 cups Italian bread crumbs
  • 4 tsp (heaping) Wondra or sifted flour
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • pinch of salt & pepper
  • dash of Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 pkg (12 oz) finely shredded mozzarella cheese
  • angel hair pasta, it's not too heavy


  1. Cut green pepper, onions and garlic to place in food processor.
  2. Mince the onion, garlic & green pepper with a chopper/processor. Add minced onion, garlic & green pepper. Be careful not to brown the pan.
  3. Use a large pot for sauce. Put the oil in the pan and heat on medium-high.
  4. Add the tomato paste, stirring. Add a can of water and stir up the tomato paste until smooth. Add both cans of crushed tomatoes and rinse out the two cans and add 1 can of water.
  5. Ad

  6. Stir this very well now! Add all your seasonings. Stirring until everything is mixed in well.
  7. When the sauce starts boiling, reduce to a simmer and cover. Stirring frequently.
  8. Place all the chicken breasts filets on a dinner plate.
  9. Using two square plastic bowls, one with 4 beaten eggs, the other with the mixture of bread crumbs, flour, grated cheese, and seasonings.
  10. Dip each filet in the crumbs first, then egg, then crumbs again (this gives it a nice thicker coating).
  11. Heat a skillet with a 1/4 cup of olive oil. Place it in the hot oil. Lower the heat if it starts to spatter. You want golden brown, no darker. Do this until all the chicken is partly cooked.
  12. Placing each cooked piece of chicken on a paper towel lined casserole dish. This absorbs the oil.
  13. Ad

  14. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes, while you cook your pasta. Enjoy!
  15. When all done, put a ladle of sauce on top of each piece and cover it with shredded Parmesan cheese.

I like this recipe because it's quick, easy, inexpensive and delicious. We all love that! I serve it with the sides of salad and garlic toast.


It's chicken patties, topped with melted provolone cheese. Serve with spaghetti noodles, both topped with your favorite spaghetti sauce.

I was inspired to create my own $10 recipe so here it is: Start the rice first. I use brown rice because it is more nutritious than white rice. Nuke the water in the microwave for 3 minutes.

This is chicken parmigiana made in a skillet. I actually like to use brown eggs instead of white ones, since they are healthier when I can.

For a golden appearance, after chicken is cooked through, set oven to broil.. Broil 2 to 4 minutes or until golden brown.

Easy to do and tasty! Brown chicken patties until crispy in a 400 degree F oven in a 13x9 inch pan- about 20 minutes or so.

Another chicken recipe that I have come up with to use in a pinch.

I take bread crumbs and mix them with Mrs. Dash flavorings. We really like the Herb and Garlic or Herb and Onion. Add a little garlic salt and the powdered Parmesan cheese. If you use real grated Parmesan, wait until last ten or fifteen minutes or it may burn.

I dredge chicken breasts in a bowl with beaten eggs, then toss in bread crumb mix and place in baking pan sprayed with non-stick spray. I cook about one hour on 350 degrees F.

While that cooks, I either make a white sauce with butter, flour and milk or use a canned alfredo sauce in a pinch. I then take one can of diced tomatoes and add to the sauce and cook to a thick sauce and let simmer, stirring frequently until chicken is done.

I then place the chicken on each plate and pour sauce over the chicken. Serve with your favorite steamed veggies. WONDERFUL with grilled zucchini.
