Chicken Parmesan

For my birthday I received a local church cookbook. While looking for an easy casserole dish I stumbled across a chicken parmesan recipe -- actually two recipes. I combined the two and added a twist of my own. Here it is for your eating pleasure!

Baked Chicken Parmesan

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast (or chicken breast tenderloins)
2 eggs, beaten with 2 tbsp milk
2/3 c Italian bread crumbs
^^I combined homemade, seasoned bread crumbs & regular, canned bread crumbs
1/3 c Parmesan cheese
1/2 stick margarine, melted
lemon zest

-Preheat oven to 350 and spray grease a 9x13 dish
-Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and lemon zest of 1/2 lemon
-Dip chicken in eggs, dredge in bread crumb mixture, and then place in greased dish
-Pour melted margarine over chicken and top with extra bread crumb mixture
-Bake in 350 oven for 30 minutes

Menu Ideas
I served this with whole wheat spaghetti mixed with a jar of sauce. The spaghetti and sauce was then topped with fresh Italian cheese and the chicken breast. Garlic bread and a salad rounded out the meal.

Would I eat/make this again? Yes! One comment someone made at dinner was that in their previous experience the sauce had been baked with the chicken. I might try this next time. This was definitely very easy and delicious.
