Chicken Parmesan

I was inspired by my lovely friend Emily yesterday when she posted on Instagram about a delicious chicken pot pie her daughter made from a Progresso Recipe Starter.  This triggered my memory of the Progresso Recipe Starters I bought a month ago.  (Still working on inventory of my pantry....)
So I got started.  I'm kind of a make it up as I go gal.  I follow recipes but I like to add my own touches so I can post them on my blog and claim them....ahem I mean so that my food is deliciously my own.
This is what I ended up with

For the chicken you need
Approx 2 lbs chicken breasts (I cut them into smaller pieces for my kids)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I used Walmart brand)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cube butter
1 clove of garlic minced
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1 can Progresso Recipe Staters Fire Roasted Tomato

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Rinse the chicken and cut it up (if you want it also cooks faster this way). Melt the butter and add the garlic.  Dip chicken pieces in the butter mixture then place them in a ZipLock bag with the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese.  Shake it up well and place in single layer in 9x13 dish.  I did not grease the pan no need with the butter on the chicken.
Place in preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes turning the chicken once.  Then pour Progresso Recipe Starters over the chicken and top with cheese and bake for 10 more minutes or until cheese is melted and chicken juice runs clear.
I served mine over whole wheat thin spaghetti with broccoli on the side.  My kids inhaled it and I'm still waiting for husband to come home to try it out.  I loved the flavor and  I loved that it didn't require a lot of extra seasoning.  The recipe starter had lots of flavor but it wasn't overwhelming.  Hope you enjoy it too.

I was not compensated in any way for this post.  I just like to cook and when I find something awesome I like to share.  And maybe if some from Progresso reads this they will send me more LOL!
