Italian Chicken Breast with noodles

On the back of the parmesan cheese container, there was this recipe for Italian chicken and it sounded really good. Of course, I always have to change things around in a recipe, or make it a little different, so I decided to add some Hunts Three Cheese spaghetti sauce to the chicken and serve it over linguini. It turned out really yummy! Earlier that day, me and my mom were watching Rachel Ray, and that inspired me to make some garlic bread...unfortunately my mom threw away the garlic clove I bought a little while ago, so i had to settle with using garlic powder and margarine (even though ever since AJ informed us it is one molecule away from plastic i've not eaten it...I decided a little bit wouldn't hurt), but it turned out just as good. My mom asked me to put this recipe on here so she can have it next year while i'm at college. It's pretty simple, so hopefully you all like it too :)

Italian Chicken Breasts and noodles
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/4 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
1 tsp. Parsley
1/4 tsp. Paprika
1/4 tsp. Black Pepper
2 Tbsp. melted butter
5-6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 large can of Hunts three cheese spaghetti sauce (or any flavor you like)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix the paremesan cheese, bread crumbs, and seasonings together in a bowl. Dip chicken into melted butter, and then coat with the parmesan cheese mixture. Put chicken in a sprayed glass cooking dish. Bake for 30-35 minutes (or until chicken is done). After the chicken is cooked, place in a large pan on the stove. Pour over the top the spaghetti sauce, making sure it covers all the chicken. Just cook until the sauce is warmed, about 10 minutes. Serve over linguini, or any other type of noodles.

Garlic Bread
French bread, cut in half
Softened Margarine or Butter
Garlic Powder
Parmesan Cheese

Place bread onto cooking sheet. Cut into slices. Spread a light layer of margarine (or butter) on the bread and put about a tsp or so of garlic powder on each slice of bread. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over the top. Put under the broiler for about 5 minutes, but watch closely because it will burn easily!

Oh, and we also had a really yummy salad with this meal. It was just lettuce, cherry tomatoes, and cucumbers. We discovered a really cool type of cucumber while watching Rachel Ray. It is seedless, and the skin on the outside is so thin, you don't have to peel it. It's great. They are called English Cucumbers and are at any store.
