use two bowls and put your egg in one and your bread crumbs in another.IMG_6987 IMG_6984

roll your chicken in the egg wash and then the bread crumbs and place on a baking sheet that is sprayed with nonstick oil.

bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through. just before you remove the chicken from the oven, sprinkle it with the cheese and put it back in for a few moments so it melts.

while the chicken is baking, you need to make your noodles and your sauce. i think you know how to make spaghetti noodles, so i won’t go into detail on that one.

when everything is done cooking, assemble it! this recipe makes four servings.. so just take a fourth of everything and put it on your plate. make some broccoli for good measure.
