Chicken Parmesan

4-6 chicken breast cutlets (pounded to tenderize and to thin out)
1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
Fresh chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley
2 eggs
Salt & Pepper
1 1/4 cup olive oil for frying—use only as much as you think you need for the amount of cutlets you are cooking at one time.
Mozzarella cheese, sliced

In a shallow bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, cheese, and parsley. In a separate shallow bowl, whisk the eggs. Prepare a cooking tray with foil and spray with Pam.

Preheat the oven to 350º F. if this is all being done at one time. If preparing for later, preheat at that time.

Heat some of the olive oil in a large sauté pan on medium-high heat. The oil should be hot, but not smoking. Season the pounded cutlets with salt & pepper. Dredge the chicken cutlets 1 piece at a time, first in the egg mixture, then in the breadcrumbs—press to make sure the crumbs stick. Lay the pieces in the hot sauté pan.

Turn the heat to medium and gently fry the cutlets until they are golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. Blot the cutlets with a paper towel when you turn them over and when they are transferred to the baking pan to remove excess oil. Place the amount of cutlets that you are having for one meal in the prepared tray. Put the other cutlets to the side for use in another meal with a salad.

Spoon some of the marinara sauce to cover each cutlet and place some slices of mozzarella over the sauce. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the mozzarella begins to melt and get lightly brown. If you are making this ahead of time, put the cheese on the cutlets after they start to sizzle in the oven. If you are doing this all at one time, you can put the cheese on the cutlets as you are putting the freshly fried cutlets in the pan.

Homemade marinara sauce can be made with home grown tomatoes and kept in freezer for winter meals. I slow simmer them in big pot – 5 lbs or more, a ‘little’ water and use a mixture of Italian herbs from local Italian grocery store – also, I use ground saltine crackers for meatballs and ‘bake’ in oven for 30 to 45 minutes depending on the number of meatballs/size of tray/baking dish

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
