Baked Chicken Parmesan

3 Tbsp. Parmesan Grated Cheese
1 Tbsp. Parsley Flakes
1/4 cup of sweet cream butter, melted
1 teaspoon of Garlic salt or Garlic powder
Shredded Parmesan Cheese
1 Jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
Angel hair pasta cooked as directed. 
5 Boneless, skinless, chicken breast washed & patted dry

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. 
If using regular pan, spray with cooking spray. ( I cooked mine on my pampered chef stoneware, so I didn't need any oil)

Mix panko crumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder/salt and parsley. Set aside.
Place melted butter in a dish by itself.

Dip both sides of the chicken in the butter, then in the crumb mixture. 
Lay chicken on baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and make sure chicken has reached 165 internal temperature. If this has been achieved, then simply place one heaping spoonful of sauce on your chicken and then add your shredded Parmesan cheese. 

Now place back in the oven for about 3 to 5 minutes, just long enough for the cheese to melt. Remove from oven carefully.

Serve over angel hair pasta and a green veggie or salad! ENJOY!

Options: you can use fresh garlic cloves, and add them to the butter mixture instead of using the garlic salt or powder. 
Also- you can substitute the shredded Parmesan cheese for mozzarella cheese.  You can also make your own bread crumbs if you had the stale bread! I didn't want to buy fresh bread just to make bread crumbs, so I opted for buying them already done!
