Skillet Chicken Parmesan

This is maybe my last post for at least the next month.  BIG news in our house - we're MOVING backing to I-O-W-A.  We're so excited to be moving closer to family.  Ryan and I both were offered positions at the University of Iowa.  We couldn't have hoped for better timing with everything - both offers came in within 3 days of another another so we could make the most informed decision for our family.  I'm on a mission to use up the food we have in the house over the next few weeks.  Tonight we had a nice family dinner with our good friend Dixon.  I felt like this was one of the last times I'd have enough kitchen stuff unpacked and enough energy to try a new recipe.  Whenever I get back at it - I'll be itching to get in the kitchen!!!

  • 3/4 cup Original Bisquick mix
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (4 oz each)
  • 3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 cups tomato pasta sauce (from 26-oz jar)
  • 1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend (4 oz) 
  • Directions:
    1) In shallow dish or pie plate, mix Bisquick mix, Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese. In another shallow dish or pie plate, beat egg. Coat chicken with Bisquick mixture, then dip into egg, and coat again with Bisquick mixture.

    2) In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 4 to 6 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Cover; cook 8 to 10 minutes longer, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F). Remove from skillet to plate.

    3) Add cooked  pasta and sauce to skillet. Place chicken on top of sauce. Sprinkle chicken with Italian cheese blend. Cover; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted.  

    I made a double batch of this because I had over 1.5 pounds of chicken to use up.  Should make for good leftovers tomorrow.  : )  Enjoy! 
    1/2 the chicken done, the other half in the skillet.
    And finally - one pic of our little man on his 9 month birthday, just last week when we announced to our family that we're headed to Iowa!
