Want a super tasty dinner that is quick to make? Italian spices and taste mixed with cheese and chicken...yum! You have to try this dish...it all just works together to make a super tasty dinner. I served mine with a side salad and some fresh garlic bread to make the meal complete. Enjoy ~ Diane.
Easy Chicken Provolone
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
Salt and ground black pepper
8-10 3 oz. chicken cutlets
3 cups tomato marinara/sauce *your choice
8 slices of provolone cheese
Preheat oven to 450.
Heat the oil in large pan, add chicken cutlets (I used boneless, skinless, fat removed, thighs.) place herbs in a small bowl to blend (sprinkle over chicken as it cooks - both sides) Season with salt and pepper. Cook just until brown, about 2 minutes per side. Remove the skillet from the heat.
Place a spoonful of the marinara sauce (I used my own fresh canned tomato sauce) in bottom of baking dish and place cutlets over sauce, lay slices of provolone on-top of chicken and sprinkle tomato sauce over and around the cutlets. Bake until the cheese melts and the chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes.
