This is a tasty Italian favorite that I always serve with linguine. It looks and tastes just as delicious as in a restaurant and costs a lot less :)

- 2 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 1⁄2 cups Italian style breadcrumbs
- 1⁄8 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1⁄2 lb sliced provolone cheese
- 1 (28 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce (Prego 3-cheese works great)
- vegetable oil
- Combine eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl or pie plate.
- Combine bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in a shallow bowl, plate or pie plate.

This recipe is easy, and it does taste authentic! It was so easy to prepare. I used a really good jar of spaghetti sauce that had some sausage and basil in it. The outcome was excellent! I served it with Mediterranean Vegetables and it was a great combination. Thanks for sharing this recipe because I will be using it again and again.
Excellent recipe - so easy to follow and tastes as good or better than restaurant fare. I use Classico sauce with tomato and basil, which complements the chicken very well. This has become my husband's favorite dish and he cannot get enough. Thank you for sharing.
A very nice way to make Chicken Parmesan. I made it exactly as written without any changes. My family enjoyed having provolone on top because it gave the chicken a rich flavor. It worked great and it was easy to put together.
