Baked Chicken Parmigiana

3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 c. Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 c. shredded parmesan cheese
2 eggs, beaten
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
9 oz. linguini, cooked according to package directions
1 jar your favorite spaghetti sauce

Preheat oven to 375*. Cover chicken breasts with wax paper and pound with meat mallet until about 1/2 inch thick or less. Combine bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in a shallow dish(I use a pie plate). Dip breasts in the beaten eggs making sure to coat each side, then dip in the bread crumb/cheese mixture coating both sides. Arrange chicken breasts in a greased 9X13 pan. Drizzle olive oil over breasts. Bake 35-40 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from oven. Pour about a cup of the spaghetti sauce over the breasts, then sprinkle with mozzarella and bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Toss linguini with the remaining spaghetti sauce. Place pasta on dishes and top with the chicken. This is delicious!
