Description

This whole meal can come together in 15 minutes, slurpy noodles, crispy chicken parmesan with the yummiest magic bullet marinara sauce.


Ingredients

FOR THE CHICKEN:

2 chicken breast, sliced through the middle horizontally

1/4 cup flour + 1/2 tsp salt + 1/8 tsp pepper

1 cup panko

1/2 cup parmesan

1 Tbsp dried parsley

1/4 tsp salt

2 eggs, lightly beaten

Fresh parmesan block to shave on top

FOR THE MARINARA:

28 oz can diced tomatoes

4 cloves garlic

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp sugar (or Swerve, sugar replacement)

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 6 oz can tomato paste

Pinch red pepper *optional

FOR THE NOODLES:

1/2 lb pasta of choice (I used whole wheat linguine)


Instructions

FOR THE CHICKEN:

Pound the chicken with a meat mallet into 1/4″ thick slices

Combine flour with salt and pepper

Dredge chicken in flour mixture, shake off excess

Dredge chicken evenly in egg mixture

Combine panko, parmesan, salt, and parsley

Dredge chicken evenly in mixture

Place in air fryer set to 350° and bake for 15 minutes

FOR THE MARINARA SAUCE:

Using a magic bullet, or food processor blend half the can of tomatoes and pour into saucepan

Process the other half of the tomatoes with the garlic, olive oil, salt, sugar (or Swerve), and red pepper

Combine with first half in the saucepan

Bring to a low boil and simmer for 10 minutes (or longer)

FOR THE NOODLES:

Cook noodles according to package directions

TO ASSEMBLE THE DINNER:

Chicken and noodles go into the bowl

Spoon on hot marinara sauce (chicken and noodles)

Layer fresh shaved parmesan on top of the marinara on the chicken, it will melt.*


Notes

Here is how you make this dinner in 15 minutes:

Start the water for the noodles first, 

While that is waiting to boil, get the chicken cutlets in the air fryer, set it for 15 minutes

Put the noodles in the water

Start on the marinara sauce, it should be ready at the same time as the chicken and noodles

* I use a vegetable peeler to shave fresh parmesan
