Chicken Parm done right

Brent and I eat a lot of pasta and chicken, so when I stumbled across this recipe I knew it was for us immediately. I thought we'd like it...little did I know it would be the source of my daydreams. [Yes, it is that good]. I typically have all of these items on hand, which is what I think constitutes the making of a great dish. So without further adieu, here is a recipe that may just change your life if you let it: [and if you don't have acid reflux like my father...sorry Dad, but this one might be the death of ya!]: 

4-6 thin sliced chicken breasts
italian seasoning [I also like to throw in a bit o' garlic powder for good measure]
tomato sauce [I like to get a four cheese or garlic flavored one, but traditional sauce works fine too!]
1 lb. of pasta, any kind
mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese
Sauté your chicken on medium heat in olive oil.  As it browns, keep turning it and season both sides with italian seasoning and a bit o' garlic powder]. This is why it's good to use thin sliced breasts, because you can trust they are cooked through without cutting them up. 
For good measure while you're cooking the chicken, throw some green beans in a saucepan with a healthy plop of butter :)  Phone pic…sorry it is a bit grainy
Once cooked through, add the tomato sauce right over the chicken and let that simmer on low heat for 10 minutes or so.  Then add the mozzarella cheese, and the parm to the top of that and put the whole pan in the oven [umm...make sure your man is capable of this...I guess if it's not then pour it into a casserole dish or something that is].  
After I took it out of the oven…yum!

Broil it for 10 minutes or so till your cheese is golden brown.  serve over pasta [with a little extra cheese if you're like me!] 

Seriously delicious.
Yum. Yum. Yum.

And for good measure, here is a picture of one of LaLa's newest outfits thanks to a wonderful lady who has raised 5 girls :) Hilarious and awesome. She will wear this to prom when I go check out my girls' dresses and dates :)
