Chicken cooked with tomato-y pasta sauce, topped with mozzarella. A really easy, everyday dish.
I make this for my sons also! I usually just pan fry the chicken, that I have seasoned with italian seasoning, salt, pepper and garlic powder, in olive oil. After this is complete I remove chicken and keep warm. I heat the spaghetti sauce through (omitting the broth step and also the onions). I place the chicken breast on the cooked spaghetti, then place the spaghetti sauce on top and then the final touch is sprinking mozzarella cheese on top. If you add the cheese quickly to the hot spaghetti sauce it will melt on its' own. My son also likes for me to sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top of the spaghetti noodles prior to placing the chicken on top. - 22 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is absolutely delicious and a very simple variation of a family favorite. The only thing I did was add Italian flavored breadcrumbs to thicken the "gravy" towards the end of cooking. That made it taste even more authentic! Also, I found that using frozen chicken tenderloins did away with any problem with chicken not being tender. Is now on top of family's most-requested list! - 07 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My husband and children loved this. I made the major of it while trying to sooth and breastfeed my 9 week old--easy! Thanks! - 11 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
