Ragu No Frying Chicken Parmesan

We found the recipe for this delish No Frying Chicken Parmesan in a magazine and made it for dinner on Saturday. It’s so simple and easy to put together and takes no time at all. I’ve never made Chicken Parmesan before but I always guessed it would be a little time consuming so this recipe seems to be a shortcut. And the best part is you have cheesy, saucy Chicken Parm on the table in no time! Make some garlic bread to go on the side and you have a meal of pure Italiano goodness. 😉

Ingredients:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1-1/4 lbs.)
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
1 jar (1 lb. 10 oz.) Ragu® Old World Style® Pasta Sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (about 4 oz.)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400°. Dip chicken in egg, then bread crumbs.

Arrange chicken in 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Bake 20 minutes. Pour Pasta Sauce over chicken; top with cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Serve, if desired, with hot cooked pasta.

Snickerdoodles

Oh snickerdoodle, how i love thee! For me there aren’t many things better than a nice warm and chewy snickerdoodle to make my day happy, and this is my go to recipe. I searched and searched for a great snickerdoodle recipe for some time, and i finally found two that i really liked…yes liked, but not loved. So i decided to combine the two recipes and voila, my perfect snickerdoodle! This cookie has it all, it’s soft and chewy in the center, and has a nice crisp on the edges. The corn syrup in these cookies is really what gives them that good and chewy consistency, and who doesn’t love chewy and gooey cookies! Roll them in some cinnamon and sugar and they are cinnamon, gooey, chewy, crispy perfection! I have made these cookies for the kids in my church drama group and they loved them, which pretty much sealed the deal on this recipe for me…I make them all the time! lol. So friends give this recipe a try for yourselves and let me know what you think!

Ingredients:
1 cup shortening
1 3/4 c sugar
1 1/2 T light corn syrup
2 eggs
2 1/2 t vanilla
2-3/4 cups flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 t ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt

2 Tbl. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

With electric mixer combine shortening, sugar and corn syrup until well blended and fluffy (2 minutes). Add eggs and vanilla. Beat till smooth.

Sift flour, cream of tartar, soda, salt, and nutmeg together. add half to sugar mixture,beat till well incorporated. Stir in remaining flour mixture, mix well. Mix together 2 Tbl. sugar and cinnamon. Roll dough into balls the size of small walnuts and roll in cinnamon sugar. Place two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cookies will puff up, then flatten out with crinkled tops.
