Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup pasta, 1 chicken breast half, about 1/3 cup sauce, 1 teaspoon parmesan cheese, and 2 tablespoons mozzarella cheese)

Start with a jar of pasta sauce and add a splash of red wine to make this quick and easy version of the classic Italian chicken dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.

Step 2

While pasta cooks, combine breadcrumbs and seasoning in a shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg white; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and salt, and dredge in breadcrumbs.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 3 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, red pepper, and wine to pan, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook 1 minute. Add pasta sauce; cook 1 minute or until bubbly.

Step 4

Arrange chicken over sauce; top each breast half with a spoonful of sauce, and sprinkle with cheeses. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes or until chicken is done.

Step 5

Drain pasta. Serve chicken and sauce over pasta. Garnish with basil, if desired.
