Chicken Parmesan

Serves: 2
approx prep time: 15min
approx cook time: 15min

- 2 Whole Chicken Breasts
- 2 cups Pasta
- 1/2 bottle Pasta Sauce
- Breadcrumbs
- Seasoned Salt
- Cajun Seasoning
- Canola Oil
- 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese

- Bring water for the pasta to a boil while preparing other items.
- Butterfly the chicken breasts, so that you have one large piece of chicken, of roughly even thickness.
- Lightly wet chicken with water.
- Place chicken on a large plate.
- Sprinkle chicken with bread crumbs, seasoned salt, and Cajun seasoning, flip over and cover the other side.
- Pour oil into a large pan (Cast Iron is preferable, but stainless works as well, I recommend against using non-stick for this), until the oil is about 1/8th to 1/4 of an inch deep. Bring this up to temperature over medium heat.
- Cook the pasta as per the directions on the package, and warm 1/2 of the bottle of sauce in the microwave, or via stovetop.
- Cook the chicken in the now hot oil, for about 2-3 minutes on one side, flip, sprinkle with some of the leftover breadcrumbs. Cook 2-3 minutes on the other side, flip, and sprinkle with leftover breadcrumbs. Cook 2-3 minutes, and flip one last time.
- Remove chicken from pan and let sit on a paper towel for 30 seconds to one minute before serving.
- Serve pasta, top with sauce, place chicken cutlet on top and sprinkle with cheese.
