Me, Myself and I

Remember this meal?  From here and here.  It’s an oldie but goodie.  Quick, delicious and complete.   This was dinner on Tuesday night.  Last night got busy and before I knew it, 7:00 rolled around and I was standing in the kitchen with no plan.  But in the fridge I had some chicken pieces left over from Tuesday’s dinner, tomato sauce  and mozzarella leftover from Saturday’s homemade pizzas.

And there it was,  chicken parmesan.

While it baked I cut up some zucchini and put it on a sheet pan to roast with the chicken.  It took all of 5 minutes to assemble and 15 minutes to bake.  I threw together a quick salad and dinner was done.

As I ate, I thanked my Saturday and Tuesday self.  They made the unorganized  Thursday self look so pulled together.  It’s really nice when we work as a team.  Now, I’m off to talk to Friday Andra about her blog writing.  She really needs to step up her game.

Better the second time around chicken parmesan

6 pieces of panéed chicken breasts, preferably leftover

6 oz. of fresh mozzarella

2 cups of Tomato sauce

1/4 cup of freshly grated Parmesan

1/4 cup fresh basil, torn into pieces

Preheat oven to 350°.

Spread the bottom of a medium-sized baking dish with a thin layer of tomato sauce.  Lay chicken in a single layer over the sauce.  Spread remaining sauce over chicken pieces.  Lay mozzarella slices over the chicken and sauce.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese has melted and browned just slightly.

Serve with fresh basil and freshly grated parmesan sprinkled over the top.
