Ingredients

Sauce:

1/2 large yellow onion grated

1/4 cup olive oil

2 medium garlic cloves, peeled and minced

1 can (14.5 oz) Salsa Styled diced tomatoes or (regular stewed tomatoes)

Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)

Pinch of sugar

Chicken:

4 chicken breast cutlets (1 1/4 to 1 1/2 pounds total)

Salt

2 eggs

1 cup breadcrumbs

1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup olive oil

2 Tbsp fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced

8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded

Pasta:

Casarecci Specialty Pasta from Puglia Italy (or your favorite pasta)

How to prepare:

1 Preheat oven to 375. Prepare the sauce. Coarsely grate half of an onion. Heat olive oil in a saucepan on medium-high heat. Add the onions and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add the minced garlic. Cook for about a minute more. Then add the tomatoes, oregano, red pepper flakes, and sugar. Bring to a simmer, reduce the heat to maintain the simmer. Cook, uncovered.

2 Working one at a time, place a chicken cutlet between two layers of wax paper (or plastic wrap). With a meat pounder, pound the chicken pieces to flatten them to an even thickness – between 1/4 – 1/2 inch. (If you don’t have a meat pounder, you can use a rubber mallet,  or a heavy rolling pin.) Sprinkle a little Salt on each piece of chicken.

3 In a small bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan, and pinch of salt. In separate shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs.

4 Heat 1/4 cup of olive oil in a large sauté pan on medium-high heat. Dip the chicken pieces 1 piece at a time, and on both sides first in the egg mixture, then in the breadcrumbs. Then lay the pieces in the hot sauté pan. Turn the heat to medium, then gently fry the cutlets until they are golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. You can also bake them if you prefer! (see alternate method below)

5. Cook pasta according to directions in a separate pan. Drain and set aside.

6  Place cooked pasta in your dish. Place a cutlet or two on top. Spoon out a hefty amount of sauce. Add shredded Mozzarella! If you do this while everything is steaming hot, your cheese will melt perfectly! Garnish with chives, etc.

Alternate Method: Bake cutlets in the oven at 350 degrees until Chicken Cutlets reach an inside temp of 165. Place cooked pasta in a bowl. Top with cutlets, sauce and cheese!
