Day 41: Chicken Parmesan with Penne

Tonight I made Chicken Parmesan with Penne.  It is a great dish to feed a crowd or save for leftovers the next day.

6 chicken breasts, cut in half
1 24 oz jar of tomato sauce
3 T dry thyme
1 tsp herbs de provence
salt and pepper
1 T olive oil
1/2 cup parmesan, grated
3 cups penne pasta, prepared as directed on package

1) Season each side of the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, thyme and herbs de provence.
2) In a large fry pan, heat oil on high and brown chicken breasts for approximately 2 minutes each side.
3) Turn temperature to medium and cook covered for 10 minutes.
4) Add tomato sauce to chicken and let simmer for 10 minutes.
5) Sprinkle chicken breasts with parmesan, cover and cook for approximately 5 minutes more.
6) Remove chicken breasts from pan and set aside.
7) Add sauce from fry pan to penne and toss.
8) Slice chicken and serve on top of penne.
