whisk an egg in a bowl, place a piece of chicken breast in the bowl and coat with the egg. Pour some bread crumbs in a separate bowl and transfer the egg-coated chicken to the bread crumbs and coat the chicken. Place the chicken on a glass baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes @ 400 degrees. Take out of the oven and top the chicken with mozzarella cheese and place back into the oven for about 5-10 minutes (or until cheese is melted). Meanwhile, heat the sauce (canned or homemade) in a saucepan. Pour the sauce onto a serving plate and place the chicken on top. I served my meal with a Whole Foods roll and sauteed broccoli (EVOO plus lots of garlic). But obviously…. you can also serve this with pasta!
I used whole wheat Wegmans bread crumbs and Muir Glan Organic Tomato sauce (I was a bit lazy tonight and did not feel like making my own sauce…but I must admit I do enjoy some jared sauces! especially this one)
