CHICKEN:

2 ½ – 3 lbs boneless chicken

2 eggs, beaten

1 ½ cup seasoned bread crumbs

2 TBSP olive oil

1 TBSP butter

1 ½ cups sliced mushrooms

3 – 4 cloves garlic, sliced

1 TBSP olive oil

1 TBSP butter

1 cup Mozzarella

Dip chicken in egg, then pressboth sides into bread crumbs.  Preheat large skillet and add 2 TBSP olive oil and 1 TBSP butter.  Cook chicken until nicely browned on both sides, then remove to a 9 x 13 baking dish.  (While chicken is browning, put the leftover egg in the microwave for the dogs.)

In same pan, add 1 TBSP olive oil and 1 TBSP butter.  Sauté mushrooms and garlic for about 2 min.  Pour over chicken, including whatever juice may remain in pan. Cover with foil and bake at 350* for about 30-40 min or until chicken is cooked through.

Remove from oven and drain juice.  Sprinkle grated Mozzarella over chicken. When cheese is melted, sprinkle parsley on top.

ALFREDO SAUCE:

1/4 cup white wine

4 TBSP butter

2 TBSP olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

3 cups half and half

1 ½ TBSP corn starch

¼ tsp white pepper

½ cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

1/3 cup Romano cheese, freshly grated

¾ cup Mozzarella cheese

Parsley for garnish

PREPARATION:

Cook fettuccini or linguine while preparing sauce.

In medium saucepan, add the wine, and cook to reduce.  Add corn starch and whisk to incorporate. Add olive oil and butter over medium/low heat until butter is melted.  Add garlic, half and half, and white pepper.  Bring to simmer, and cook over low heat for about five minutes, stirring regularly.

Add Parmesan and Romano in small batches, whisking until cheese is melted.

To plate:  Place drained pasta on plate.  Pour Alfredo sauce over pasta.  Place chicken on top.  Dive in.

OPTIONAL:  I very often throw a small bowl of frozen broccoli and peas in the microwave to cook while preparing the sauce.  I drain them well and add to the Alfredo sauce just before serving.  In fact, I almost always do.

Serve with homemade Italian bread on the side.  Oh my!

(Note: I chose not to put any Mozzarella or Alfredo on top of the chicken for photographic reasons. I wanted you all to see how nice the chicken looks after baking.)
