Cheesy Chicken Marinara
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet.Advertisement
Place beaten eggs in a shallow bowl. Place bread crumbs in a separate bowl and mix with 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese.
Dip chicken breasts in the egg mixture. Coat chicken breasts on all sides with bread crumbs. Place chicken breasts on prepared baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven 20 minutes. Remove sheet from oven and top each breast with some marinara sauce. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the breasts.
Bake until cheese has melted and sauce is bubbly, about 10 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
I love chicken, marinara sauce, and cheese, so I was determined to make a recipe that I could "whip up" on a week night after a long day at work.
Serve with a side of pasta or salad and garlic bread.
