Chicken Marinara

After I have seen the movie Julie and Julia, I got so inspired with the story. I started looking online for Julia Childs recipes. When I looked for her name, I came upon  lots of recipes and I came across this one but I am not sure if it’s hers, coz the website name is different. It was from Simply Recipes, and the food looks really appetizing. So, I cooked it for dinner and it was great..


                                     Chicken Marinara

I kind of modified some of the ingredients, but I did follow the recipe to the T, but had to adjust the measurement.


Chicken Marinara Recipe


8 Tbsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves, chopped
Half sized medium onion, cut in small pieces
1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoons dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 cup breadcrumbs 
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 large eggs, beaten
3 skinless boneless chicken breast, cut in half and not too thick
3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese


1 Heat 4 tablespoons olive oil in heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and shallots and sauté until tender, about 4 minutes. Add tomatoes, oregano, and crushed red pepper. Simmer until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Mix in basil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

2 Blend breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese in small bowl. Place flour and eggs in separate shallow bowls. Coat chicken with flour, then eggs, then breadcrumb mixture.

3 Heat remaining oil in heavy large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches if necessary, add chicken and sauté until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Place chicken pieces on a microwave-proof serving dish. Spoon sauce over chicken pieces. Sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for at least 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Makes 6 servings.

Serve with Garlic Bread..It was yummie!!! My family loved it, Roan ate it, I cannot believe that.

Masarap siya ate Cecile, pati si Roan kumain eh, nagustuhan din ni Rodney, originally, chicken thigh ang sa recipe, kaso ayaw ni Rodney ng dark meat kaya skinless at boneless breast ang ginawa ko, it's really good. Madlai lang siyang gawin.
