How To Make This Baked Crispy Chicken Parmesan Recipe:
When you are ready for dinner, prepare your noodles according to the directions on the box for al dente.
Then preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Now, get out a large baking sheet and spray it with vegetable cooking spray and set it aside.
Then in a large ziplock bag, place the crouton and use a rolling pin to crush up the croutons until they become crumbs.
Next, take out your chicken and dip one breast in the beaten egg.
Following the egg, place the chicken in the crushed up croutons and coat both sides of the chicken.
Once the chicken is breaded, place it on the prepared baking sheet and continue the same steps with the rest of the chicken breasts.
After all of the chicken is on the sheet, spray the tops of the breaded chicken with vegetable cooking spray and then place the baking sheet in the oven.
Allow the chicken to bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked all the way through.
While the chicken is cooking, heat up the pasta sauce over medium heat in a small saucepan.
When the chicken is done, serve it over the cooked noodles and top it with the warm pasta sauce and parmesan cheese and then dig in!
