Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. Coat a sauté pan with olive oil and place on medium. When oil begins to haze, add onions and garlic and leave until onions become translucent. Add ¾ of the basil and carefully add tomatoes. Cook and stir until mixture has become a thick sauce (approximately 15 minutes). Add sugar if desired. Lower heat to keep sauce warm.
  3. Place chicken breasts side by side (smooth side up) between two pieces of plastic wrap. Pound the chicken until the breasts are roughly ½ inch thick. Season the chicken on both sides with 2 tablespoons RUB1OUT Poultry Rub and set aside. Place flour into a shallow bowl or plate. Beat eggs in another bowl. Mix breadcrumbs, parmesan, and 1 tablespoon RUB1OUT Poultry Rub in a another bowl.
  4. Dredge seasoned chicken in flour, and then transfer to beaten eggs. Transfer chicken to bread crumb mixture - ensure both sides of the breast are coated thoroughly. Repeat process for each piece of chicken and set aside.
  5. In a large skillet, heat olive oil on medium-high heat until the oil is hot. Carefully add breasts and fry each side until golden brown (about 4 minutes each). Transfer chicken into a baking dish and top each piece with tomato sauce. Then, equally layer each piece of chicken with mozzarella cheese and fresh basil.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes - internal temperature of chicken needs to reach 165°. The cheese should be golden and bubbly.
  7. Serve with fresh spaghetti or creamy polenta.
  8. PREPARE TO ENTER YOUR HAPPY PLACE!
