The best Chicken Parmesan

I LOVE simple, healthy yummy meals.
My husband often requests this meal so it's a favorite of ours!
I usually have all the ingredients on hand, and it takes about 10 minutes to throw together and toss in the oven!

Step #1. Wash and cut chicken breast into thinner pieces.
( When cooking for Aaron and I, I use a total of two LARGE chicken breasts and cut them in half ( to make them thinner ) and then into about 3 inch strips. It gives it more flavor to have them smaller and not one big HUNK of chicken with a little amount of topping. )

Step #2. Combine the following ingredients in a small bowl.

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
( I use the real Parmigiano Reggiano from Costco (( that I just keep in the freezer so it never goes bad )) 

1/4 cup dry bread crumbs

1 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

Stir in bowl and set aside.

Step #3:  In another bowl add a little olive oil.
( I don't measure, I just guess :)
So you should have two bowls. One with the parmesan mixture and one with olive oil.

Step #4: LIGHTLY cover raw chicken with olive oil and then dip into parmesan mixture.

 Should look something like this ^^

Step #5: Spray your glass dish and cook uncovered at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
( I usually turn the oven to broil after 20 minutes and leave it in for about 2 more minutes to make the outside of the chicken really crispy! - Total personal preference! )

Serve with angel hair and tomato sauce.
We hardly ever have white grains in our house :/ It's always wheat or multigrain!
This is our FAVORITE "Spaghetti pasta". ^^
I have tried whole wheat pasta and don't like how heavy it is!
This is Multigrain pasta and we love the taste over the wheat pasta so much better!
( This Barilla brand has every other kind of pasta imaginable offered in multi-grain! I love it! - And no it's not a special organic thing! I just buy it at the regular grocery store! )

And WAAALA! You have a simple easy meal!
Whether it's cooked veggies or a salad - make sure you get your greens!
