Reclaim Sunday Supper! Take the Sunday Supper pledge and make dinnertime a priority in your life. With all the activities and racing around that we all do, it is so hard to actually sit down to enjoy dinner with our families every single night- actually its pretty much impossible sometimes!
But Sunday nights or any ONE night a week, I try to make a family meal, that everyone enjoys, so we can slow down a bit and maybe share some time together at the table to reconnect and maybe, just maybe create some memories over a shared meal.
I like this Skillet Chicken Parmesan, because it tastes a lot like the one that takes hours to make in the oven, but it’s fast, uses one skillet, and is less caloric than the heavier baked chicken parmesan that you have in a restaurant. I also love this because I serve it with pasta for the kiddos and with some sauteed kale for my husband and I who try not to indulge in the pasta too much- we all win here! Serve with some crusty garlic bread for the kids and you are set! Enjoy each other and share some food!
Skillet Chicken Parmesan
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. olive oil
4 split and boned chicken breasts (or two whole boneless breasts)
3 8-ounce cans tomato sauce (no sugar, no salt)
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
extra salt and pepper for seasoning the chicken
In a small bowl, combine the basil, oregano, garlic and onion powders, salt and pepper. Mix. Set aside.
Using a serrated or sharp bladed knife slice the chicken in half like this:
You should have 8 slices total. Season with the extra salt and pepper.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the oil. Saute three chicken pieces at a time, to avoid overcrowding in the pan, about 5 minutes each side, until cooked all the way through. Remove and continue until all the chicken is cooked.
Add the chicken back to the pan, overlapping the pieces. Pour the sauce over the top and sprinkle the spices over it all. Simmer covered for 5 minutes. Flip the chicken pieces over and sprinkle the cheese all over the top, cover and continue to simmer for another 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted.
Garnish with some chopped parsley and serve!
This serves 4 servings, of 2 half-cut breasts each person or 8 servings of 1-half cut breast. This recipe is easily doubled (or cut in half) and will serve my family of 6 (2 adults and 4 smaller eaters)!
