Rock Star Chicken

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • 4 whole boneless chicken breasts
  • 3 to 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • 8 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 10 ounces baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • ¾ cup red wine
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together the eggs, flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl. Cut the chicken breasts into uniform thickness. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Dip the chicken into the batter and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the pan and arrange in a single layer in a baking dish. Top each piece with cheese. Add butter to the sauté pan and sauté the mushrooms for three minutes. Deglaze the pan with red wine, simmer for three minutes. Add the tomato sauce and simmer for ten minutes later. Add parsley, salt and pepper. Pour sauce over the chicken. Bake 25 minutes, let stand for 5 minutes and serve.
