Ingredients

Kosher salt

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 cloves garlic, smashed

1 8-ounce can tomato sauce

4 leaves basil, torn, plus more for topping

All-purpose flour, for dredging

1 large egg

3/4 cup breadcrumbs

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

4 chicken cutlets (about 4 ounces each)

6 ounces angel hair pasta

4 ounces mozzarella, sliced

Directions

  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat; add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Add the tomato sauce, basil and 1 cup water. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium low and cook until thickened, about 12 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, pour some flour into a shallow bowl. Beat the egg with 1/4 cup water in another bowl. Mix the breadcrumbs, parsley and 1 tablespoon parmesan in a third bowl. Coat the chicken with the flour, then with the egg mixture and breadcrumbs. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Preheat the broiler. Cook the pasta as the label directs; drain. Meanwhile, heat the remaining olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken; cook until golden, 3 minutes per side. Top with the sauce, mozzarella and the remaining 1 tablespoon parmesan. Transfer to the broiler until melted, about 2 minutes. Transfer the chicken to plates. Toss the pasta with the remaining sauce in the skillet and serve with the chicken. Top with basil.
