If one thing is certain, its that its not difficult to feed BR. I think I have mentioned it before. But I am ever amazed at how simple men are. A random trip to the grocery store had us standing randomly in the baked breads aisle. And the moment my nose caught a whiff of the freshly baked bread, my mind was devouring a warm hoagie with soft fluffy innards and flaky crust. Inside the hoagie was a juicy piece of chicken fried with breadcrumbs, topped with mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce.
My mind does that.
I told BR how that bread made my stomach growl. And before I knew it, there were two fresh hoagies in the shopping cart along with mozzarella and chicken cutlets. Chicken parm heroes.
I made 2 heroes. I ate 1/2 and was stuffed. BR powered through an entire hoagie. This was perfect for a night in watching a good action movie and an ice cold beer. Sometimes, couples need a break from the rom coms.
For Couples Night Chicken Parm Heroes
3 chicken breasts
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
oil for frying
1 1/4 cup marinara sauce
1.5 cups shredded mozzarella
Dredge the chicken cutlet in egg and coat in breadcrumbs. Fry the cutlets in oil over medium heat for 4-6 minutes per side.
Preheat oven to 425*.
Place chicken cutlets in a baking dish, cover with marinara sauce and cheese. Put in the oven for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven when cheese is melted.
Place the chicken parm in the hero.
Watch BR inhale mammoth sandwich.
Then watch movie.
Its not rocket science but more and more, I find that bringing it back to the basics for something simple and hearty results in happy tummies. Happy, full tummies.
