Ragu No Frying Chicken Parmesan

Prep time 20 mins
Cook time 30 mins
Yield 6 servings
A great recipe for a classic dish with a twist that will help you save time.  What could be better?


  • 3/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1-1/4 lbs.)
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 4 oz.)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 jar (1 lb. 10 oz.) Ragu® Old World Style® Pasta Sauce

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Combine bread crumbs, Italian seasoning and garlic powder in shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg, then crumb mixture; turn to coat.


  3. Arrange chicken in 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Bake 20 minutes.


  5. Pour Pasta Sauce over chicken; top with cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Serve with hot pasta.


  7. TIP: Most dishes that call for frying can be baked to cut down on the fat.  Try substituting eggplant for chicken for a vegetarian version.
