Sonia's Chicken Breast Parmigiana

6 chicken breast
6 pieces square mozzarella cheese
1 cup italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 eggs
2 egg whites
1 jar marinara sauce
1/4 cup canola oil
salt and pepper

Pat dry chicken. In a bowl beat eggs, salt and pepper. Place bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in 2 separate shallow plates. In a large skillet heat the oil over medium high. Dip each cutlet in the egg mixture and then in the bread crumbs so both sides are evenly coated. Fry the cutlets in the hot oil for 3 minute each side and remove from heat. Pour 1/2 marinara jar in the bottom of baking dish. Place the chicken and spread the rest of marinara on top. Cover each piece with mozzarella cheese. Bake 450 degrees for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serves 6

*This dish is great with a side of simple pasta.
