How to Prepare the Chicken Breasts for Chicken Parmesan Over Angel Hair Pasta
For this recipe, use boneless, skinless chicken breast halves. Cut each half in half again horizontally creating a thin chicken “steak”.
Then lay each thin cut of chicken breast on a cutting board. I prefer using plastic cutting boards for meat. They’re easier to disinfect. Then cover the pieces of chicken breast with plastic wrap or wax paper.
Using a meat-tenderizing hammer or a heavy mug (like mine – I don’t have a meat-tenderizing hammer) pound the chicken breasts until they’re about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle the breasts with some salt. Now they’re ready for dipping and breading.
So if you’re trying to decide between fried chicken and spaghetti for dinner, have both! Enjoy Chicken Parmesan Over Angel Hair Pasta with Easy Artisan Bread and Chocolate No-Bake Cookies tonight. Your family will be very happy!
