Servings 6


  • 2 lbs chicken breasts 3 large breasts or 6 cutlets
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 6 slices mozzarella cheese


  • Place butter in a baking pan and melt in oven at 250 degrees.
  • Meanwhile, mix together the bread crumbs, cheese, basil and seasonings in a shallow bowl (I like using a pie plate).
  • Remove pan of melted butter from oven and raise oven temp to 350 degrees.
  • Coat pieces of chicken in the melted butter in the pan, then coat with crumb mixture, pressing mixture into the chicken. Lay in a single layer in the remaining butter in pan.
  • Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven. Spread a couple of tablespoons of spaghetti sauce over each piece of chicken, then top each with a slice of mozzarella.
  • Put back into the oven and cook an additional 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 165 and the cheese is bubbling.
