recipe

  • Step 1
    Cook the pasta in boiling water according to package instructions.
  • Step 2
    Set out small 3 bowls. In the first bowl, crack one egg. Add salt, black pepper & mild chili powder or paprika to taste. Beat with whisk or fork.
  • Step 3
    Place the flour in second bowl & breadcrumbs in third. Station the bowls in order of flour, egg & bread crumbs.
  • Step 4
    Thoroughly coat one raw chicken breast in flour on both sides. Then, transfer chicken to the egg bowl & turn over to absorb. Lastly, dredge chicken in bread crumbs on both sides.
  • Step 5
    Optional: For a crispier coating, dip chicken a second time into the egg & bread crumbs.
  • Step 6
    Drain the cooked pasta in colander and set aside.
  • Step 7
    Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat. When the oil starts to glisten, add the chicken breast.
  • Step 8
    Cook chicken until golden brown on one side. Then use a spatula or fork to turn it over. Cook on other side until chicken is done. Note that cooking times vary depending on chicken breast size. Always cooking 1-2 minutes longer on the first side.
  • Step 9
    Remove chicken breast from the pan and place on a paper-towel covered plate to rest.
  • Step 10
    Heat your Italian-spiced tomato sauce or prepared marinara sauce in the same pasta cooking pot. When thoroughly warmed, add the drained pasta & stir until heated.
  • Step 11
    Cut the breaded chicken into slices & serve over your marinara sauce tossed with pasta. Enjoy!
  • Step 12
    Optional: Add a garnish of freshly chopped parsley or basil.
