  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Mix italian bread crumbs with panko in a large dish.
  • Slather each chicken breast with mayo and dredge in breadcrumbs.
  • Put chicken breasts side by side in baking dish and cook in oven for 15-18 minutes or until they start to brown on the outside.
  • Begin the sauce with jar of pasta sauce, can of tomatoes, sugar, garlic, salt and pepper (add a little onion if you wish). Simmer on low-medium heat until chicken is browning.
  • Remove chicken from oven and pour all of the sauce over the tops of the breasts.
  • Reduce oven temp to 375 and bake, uncovered, for another 20 minutes.
  • In the last 5 minutes, pull the chicken out again and layer on slices of FRESH MOZZARELLA all over the chicken and return to oven.
  • I usually turn the broiler on for about 2 mins to start the melting process then turn it back to the oven.
  • Once the cheese has melted and started to bubble, remove from oven.
  • Top with lots of torn Fresh Basil leaves.
  • Serve with pasta.

    This is totally amazing! I didn't give it five stars because I didn't follow the recipe exactly and also fresh basil is in the ingredients and the title but not mentioned at all in the instructions! I did not use the sauce but made my own with a recipe I got from America's Test Kitchen that is out of this world! I did not cook the chicken in the sauce at all because I wanted it to be crispy. I served the chicken over penne pasta and sprinkled the torn basil over the cheese when I melted it. Then sauce over top. It was sooo pretty! The chicken was incredibly moist and tender. I will be making it again for sure! My family loved it!
