Oven-Baked Chicken Parmesan

We just completed one of my favorite weeks of the year…VBS week at our church. We had about 150 children from age 4 to 12!   I absolutely love working with the children, especially the middle group, ages 7-9.  They are so much fun at that age, they respond well to instruction, and there are few discipline problems!  This year’s theme was The Fruit of the Spirit.  I am always amazed at how quickly the children can memorize verses!! I’m praying that the Lord will bless our efforts of this past week!  Here is a picture of all the children:

Since I was away from the house every morning this week and coming home pretty tired, I needed something fairly easy and fast to prepare for dinner.  I came across this recipe on a card that I must have received in the mail a few years ago.  There is no name on it, so I don’t know who published it! It is a quick and easy chicken dinner!

4 chicken breasts

1 egg, slightly beaten (I omitted this)

3/4 c. seasoned bread crumbs

28 oz. jar pasta sauce, seasoned as you like

1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 c. parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Dip chicken in egg, then bread crumbs, coating well.  Arrange chicken in a lightly spray-oiled pan. Pour pasta sauce over the chicken and sprinkle the parmesan cheese over the sauce.  Bake until chicken is tender…30 minutes or so for boneless chicken; about an hour for bone-in chicken.  Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the chicken and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
