Chicken Parmigiana

This is one of my husbands favorite meals.
It's a good thing it can come together in about 30 minutes!
Chicken Parmigiana
2 Tbsp. olive or vegetable oil
4 chicken breasts
1/3 c. flavored bread crumbs
1/3 c. grated parmesan cheese
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella
Marinara Sauce (you can use the jarred kind if you wish, or make your own with the recipe below)

Between sheets of waxed paper, flatten chicken to 1/4" thickness.
In a shallow dish, mix bread crumbs and 1/3 c. parmesan.
Dip chicken into egg, then coat with bread crumb mixture.

In 12" skillet, heat oil over medium heat.
Cook chicken in oil 10-15 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink in the center.
Spoon a small amount of marinara onto each chicken breast.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the chicken.
Broil on high until cheese is melted and golden.

Serve remaining sauce with noodles of choice (I used whole wheat fettuccine)

2 Tbsp. olive oil 
1 c. chopped onions
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 28oz. can crushed tomatoes
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

In a 3-quart saucepan, heat 2 Tbsp. oil over medium heat.
Cook onions and garlic in oil for 2 minutes, stirrin occasionally.
Stir in tomatoes, sugar, salt and pepper.
Heat to boiling.
Reduce heat; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until ready to serve.
