Chicken Parmesan Emeril Style

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound cooked linguine, fettuccine, or other pasta
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 pound mozzarella cheese, cut into 4 equal portions
  • 1 cup Emeril's Kicked Up Tomato Sauce, or your favorite red pasta sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Baby Bam
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (5 to 6 ounces each)

Directions

  • Position rack in upper third of oven and preheat to broil.
  • Season each chicken breast with 1/2 teaspoon (1/4 teaspoon per side) of the Baby Bam.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Put the chicken, smooth side down, in the skillet and cook for 4 minutes. Using tongs, turn the chicken breasts to the other side and cook for 2 minutes longer. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of the tomato sauce over each breast.
  • Top each breast with a portion of the mozzarella cheese and one tablespoon of the Parmesan cheese.
  • Using oven mitts or pot holders, carefully place the skillet under the broiler and cook until the cheese melts, bubbles, and is lightly golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remember, broiler temperatures are very hot -- have an adult help here.
  • Using oven mitts or pot holders, remove the skillet from the oven. Serve the chicken over the cooked pasta of your choice.
