Ingredients

  • 1/2 (cup) olive oil, divided
  • 6 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 (teaspoon) red pepper flakes
  • 1 (28.0 ounce) can diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil
  • 1/2 (cup) tomato sauce
  • 1 fresh basil, chopped
  • 12 (ounce) dried penne pasta
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 (cup) bread crumbs
  • 1 (teaspoon) garlic powder
  • 1 (teaspoon) salt
  • 1 (teaspoon) pepper
  • 1 (pound) boneless skinless chicken breast, pounded into thin cutlets

Directions

  1. Heat 1/4 cup of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, and saute for a few minutes. Sprinkle in the red pepper flakes, and saute for another minute. Pour in the diced tomatoes and tomato sauce, and add the basil. Simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add penne pasta, and cook for 8 minutes, or until tender. Drain.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk eggs with a fork. Place bread crumbs in a separate bowl. Stir the garlic powder, salt and pepper into the bread crumbs. Dip chicken cutlets into the egg, then press into the bread crumbs until completely coated.
  4. Heat remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry chicken for about 5 minutes per side, or until the coating is a nice dark brown color.
  5. Remove chicken, and cut into slices. Toss the chicken slices into the sauce, and simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir in the cooked penne, simmer for a few more minutes to soak up the flavor, then serve.

    It was a little hot with the red pepper flakes but very tasty.

    Please note that all of our recipes have a "spice meter". We rate the heat on a scale of 0-5 (zero being the mildest). If your family doesn't care for spicy food you can delete the heat by leaving out the red pepper flakes.

    Replaced red pepper flakes with red cayenne pepper and added a bit of wine. Husband loved it!

    I added heavy cream and extra salt, garlic and red pepper. Also braised chicken with garlic omitting breadcrumbs. Big hit with hubby and kids.
