Chicken Thigh Marinara

Chris and I for some reason have an over load of chicken in our freezer and we always make bbq something! So I decided to look in our cabient and find stuff to make!

This meal serves 2 people.

3 Chicken Thighs
4 Tbsp olive oil
Half of teaspoon of fresh garlic
Small amount of onion diced up
About a half a can of diced tomatoes
Pinch of dried red pepper
Pinch of basil
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons of parmesean cheese
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 large egg, beaten
3 slices of mozarella

How to:
1)Heat 2tbps of the olive oil in the pan. Add garlic and onion and saute until they are tender. Just about 3 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes, red pepper and basil. Simmer until the sauce thickens about 10 minutes. Set aside.

2) Blend breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese in small bowl. Place flour and eggs in separate shallow bowls. Coat chicken with flour, then eggs, then breadcrumb mixture.

3 Heat remaining oil in heavy large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and saute until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Place chicken pieces on a microwave-proof serving dish. Spoon sauce over chicken pieces. Sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese. Microwave on high heat for 10-20 seconds, just until the cheese has melted.

Great sides:
Wheat penne pasta
Fresh green beans
