DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
