4 - 6 skinless boneless chicken breasts
3 Tbs. olive oil
1/3 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 Lb. mozzarella or cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl, mix bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan.
Dip chicken pieces in beaten egg, then in the bread crumb mixture. Brown each side in the oil for about 5 to 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan heat the remaining tablespoon of oil, and saute the onions until tender. Stir in the tomato sauce, salt, pepper and oregano. Bring to a boil.
Place the chicken pieces in a baking dish. Pour 3/4 of the sauce over top. Place the mozzarella over top, and pour the remaining sauce over all.
Bake, uncovered, for about 20 minutes, until chicken is cooked and cheese is melted.
