Chicken Parmesan

I do not remember where I found this recipe, but I have been making it for years. I love how tender the chicken turns out. This recipe is so simple because you can use your favorite store bought pasta sauce. And you make the whole thing in the oven.

Chicken Parmesan
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
½ cup seasoned bread crumbs
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon dried Italian seasonings
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 egg, beaten
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350⁰. Lightly grease a medium baking sheet.
Pour egg into a shallow bowl. Place bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasonings and garlic powder in a separate shallow bowl. Dip chicken into egg, then into bread crumb mixture.

 Place coated chicken on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the oven for 40 minutes, or until no longer pink and juices run clear.
Pour ½ of the spaghetti sauce in to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Place chicken over sauce, and cover with remaining sauce.
 Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top and return to oven for 20 minutes.
