Chicken Parmigiano

READY IN: 1hr 5mins

Got this recipe out of a magazine my mother-in-law had. It's very good, and I really like that it serves 2. Some nights you just need a "one shot" meal without leftovers, and this is a tasty change.

I would rate this 3 1/2 or 4 stars, but I made some changes that I think detracted from the outcome, so I'm not rating the recipe now, just commenting. I used canned italien stewed tomatoes that I chopped in the food processor -- not quite as thick as crushed tomatoes and I wasn't happy with the result (but that's all I had on hand). I also used sliced mozzarella rather than shredded and dried basil -- which I think was a mistake. Fresh basil would have been much more flavorful, and I think it's a must for this recipe. I also would have pounded the chicken breasts there is more surface area for the topping. All in all, the method is good and I think this will be a 5-star recipe when I make it again.
