Incredible Chicken Parmesan

Price per serving for two: $3.00

You will need to buy at least a six piece package of chicken thighs.  I picked up a beauty for $4.91. If you don't have on hand: canned crushed tomatoes ($1.09) or fresh frozen, then go shopping. Everything else should be in your pantry.

Take from the pantry list:
Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Garlic Cloves
Garlic Powder
Bread Crumbs
Parmesan Cheese
Red Pepper Flakes
Dried herb seasoning
A few yellow potatoes

Turn on the oven to F400. Take a glass dish and generously drizzle over the bottom olive oil.  Chop finely as many garlic cloves as you like dropping them throughout the bottom of the dish and then sprinkle in all the above mentioned seasonings, except the dried herbs which I reserve for on top.  Take your chicken thighs and pound them out flat. Lay them into the glass dish directly onto the olive oil, garlic and seasonings. Now, shake over the thighs covering all pieces with grated parmesan cheese and then do the same with your bread crumbs. Top with dried herb seasonings * rosemary, mint and oregano. Put into the thighs into the oven uncovered and bake for 12 min, depending on your oven. My is an old 1963 Caloric and it takes a bit longer. When they are brown, remove from the oven and pour over the top a small can of crushed tomatoes, grate some additional hard cheese on top and place back into the oven on 300.
Now, prepare your potatoes. I just peel and boil. Once they are tender, drain and drizzle on some olive oil and sprinkle grated parmesan cheese and parsley flakes if you have or use fresh garnish.

Looking into the oven, they chicken parmesan should be bubbling and smelling up the entire house, for sure the kitchen. Its time to set the table and call everybody in. Say the Blessing and Enjoy!
