Chicken Cutlet Parmesan
3 large whole boneless skinless chicken breasts -- about 3 pounds
2 cups milk
4 cups flour -- sifted
6 large eggs -- beaten
pinch salt
6 cups unseasoned dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups Tomato Sauce -- warmed
1/2 pound mozzarella cheese

Using a meat tenderizer or a heavy skillet, pound the chicken between two
sheets of plastic wrap until flat, about 1/4 inch thick. Place the milk,
flour, eggs and bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls. Season the eggs with a
pinch of salt. Dip each breast in the following order; milk, flour(shake off
excess), eggs, and bread crumbs (press down firmly while coating with the bread
crumbs).
In a large skillet melt the butter with the olive oil over med-high heat until
sizzling. Arrange the chicken breasts in the pan without crowding, cooking in
batches. Reduce the heat and cook the chicken until golden brown and the
juices run clear when poked witha sharp fork, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove
to a baking sheet lined with paper towels

At this point freeze the chicken and in a seperate packet freeze the sauce. I
seperate out this out into 3 or 4 meals since there are only two of us.

To cook thaw everyting. Place 1/2 cup of warm tomato sauce in the bottom of a
baking dish. Add chicken breasts, layer another 1/2 cup tomato sauce and then
top with mozzarella. (We use less sauce and more mozzarella since dh hate
tomato sauce)

cook in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Easy Chicken and Dressing Casserole

1 box chicken flavored stove-top stuffing
1 can evaporated milk
1 can cream of chicken soup -- undiluted
2 cups cooked chicken or canned

Make stuffing according to instructions on box and place in a large mixing
bowl. Add the evaporated milk and soup; mix well. Fold in the chicken. Put
mixture into a greased casserole dish. Bake at 3014 for 40 min to 60 depending
on how brown you like it.
*I found if I cooked this and then froze and reheated in a 35014 oven for
another 20 minutes it was even better. Be sure and stir it up before serving.

Roasted Sticky Chicken
4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 large roasting chicken -- as big as you can find

In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the spices. Remove giblets from
chicken, clean the cavity well and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the spice
mixture into the chicken, both inside and out, making sure it is evenly
distributed and down deep into the skin. Place in a resealable plastic bag,
seal and refrigerate overnight.

When ready to roast chicken, place uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20 minutes per pound. Chicken should be 180 degrees to be fully cooked.
After the first hour, baste chicken occasionally (every half hour or
so) with pan juices. The pan juices will start to caramelize on the bottom of
pan and the chicken will turn golden brown. If the chicken contains a pop-up
thermometer, ignore it. Let chicken rest about 10 minutes before carving.

This recipe is a great way to roast a large chicken for planned leftovers. It
is reminiscent of those rotisserie-style chickens that are so popular now, and
it is very easy to make. The meat comes out very moist and flavorful, so it is
as good leftover as freshly cooked. Please try it and you will never roast
chicken any other way. You need to start this the night before serving.

*My notes: I don't do it the night before as we don't eat the skin anyway. But it is good!
