If anyone had told me before that I could make a One Skillet Chicken Parmesan with pasta – in only one pan – I wouldn’t have believed them. No way. Cooking spaghetti has always meant a big pot of boiling water, lots of steam and possible (likely) burns trying to drain it.  

Then late one night I was was half-heartedly watching one of those cooking infomercial programs about how a pan they were hocking doesn’t stick. Ho hum, who cares and then I realized they were cooking spaghetti noodles right in the pan! What? What was this?  A light bulb went off in my head as I thought of the possibilities.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken breast halves lengthwise into cutlets
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1-1/2 cups Italian Bread Crumbs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups marinara sauce
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 8 oz Rotini pasta dry, uncooked
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • salt and pepper

Instructions 

  • In a shallow dish, add eggs and water, whisk thoroughly to blend. In another shallow dish, place the bread crumbs. Working one at a time, dip each chicken breast piece into the egg mixture until covered, then roll in the breadcrumbs until completely coated. Have a plate or tray handy to place the breasts on until all are coated with breadcrumbs.
  • On the stove, heat the oil in a large skillet or dutch oven. Fry the breaded chicken breasts until just done, about 4 minutes on each side. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, heat the Pasta Sauce, Garlic and Seasoning to boiling. Add the uncooked pasta, cover and reduce heat to simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the pasta is tender.
  • Add the chicken breasts back into the pan, spooning sauce over the top. Heat on medium-low. Sprinkle cheese evenly over each chicken breast piece and recover for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the chicken is heated thru.
