Chicken Parmesan

This is another one of my favorite meals to make with my famous red sauce. If you already have the sauce made up, it really only takes about 15 minutes to boil the pasta and cook the chicken. We’re talking fast! If your life is anything like mine has been lately, you need fast meals.

I’ve realized I’m overcommitted right now. I knew that would be a possibility. Things will get a little better in April for a few weeks, and then again in June, at which point I’ll need to re-evalute some of my ministry areas and decide what to do. I’m pretty sure I already know, but it’s hard because I love what I do and don’t want to stop. But I also need to make sure my relationship with God and with my husband come before my ministry, and right now I don’t always have the energy to do that, so something has to go. I’m hoping this Saturday morning to have some time with God to just evaluate what’s going on in my life, what emotions I haven’t been dealing with or facing, and how I feel about where I am and what I’m doing. I’ve just been going, going, going, without taking the time to think my feelings through.

I think that picture was Eric letting me know he was hungry! He is such a wonderful husband and treats me so well. I’m really blessed to be married to him and realize I didn’t really understand love until I met him. I know, I’m getting so sappy! Guess I’m feeling reflective this week, plus Valentine’s Day is coming. We actually have never celebrated it before because we hate how commercialized it is, but since it’s a Saturday this year I’m planning to fix us a nice dinner. Oh and an amazing dessert that I won’t be able to show you until the end of the month, but I’m expecting it to be drool worthy! This recipe serves two along with a side salad.

Chicken Parmesan


1 chicken breast cut in half
1 egg
salt and pepper
1/8 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/8 cup parmesan cheese
olive oil
2 servings spaghetti noodles
1 cup Diana’s meaty red sauce


Boil noodles according to package directions.

Sprinkle chicken breast with salt and pepper. Scramble egg in a small bowl, and mix parmesan and panko in another small bowl. Dip each half of the breast in egg, coating well, then in the parmesan mixture. Heat oil in a frying pan and cook chicken on High for 3-5 minutes on each side (depending on thickness of chicken). Slice it to make sure it’s cooked through.

Heat red sauce in the microwave. Place noodles on the plate, top with red sauce and chicken slices.
