  • 2 chicken breasts
  • ½ box spaghetti Barilla Collezione Artisanal Collection
  • ~2 oz. fresh Mozzarella, sliced
  • 1 tbsp. Parmesan cheese, grated


  • ½ cup All Purpose Flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • tsp black pepper
  • tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp parmesan cheese, grated


  • 1 can tomato sauce, 15 oz.
  • ½ cup sweet onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 pinch sugar or Stevia In The Raw other sweetener


  • For breading, combine flour and seasonings evenly in a plate. Breaking one egg & scrambling it in a small bowl.
  • Add 2 Tbsp. of olive oil to pan. Heat at medium high temperature.
  • Saturate chicken breast in flour mixture on each side. Dip into egg. Then, cover again in flour mixture. Place into frying oil. Repeat for other chicken breast.
  • Fry for 4 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove chicken and place on paper towel to drain excess oil and rest.
  • For sauce, finely dice onion and mince garlic.
  • In the same pan you cooked your chicken, add finely diced onion and sauté until almost translucent.  Then, add minced garlic.
  • When onion and garlic are translucent, stir in Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, & crushed red pepper. 
  • Add in 1 can of tomato sauce.  Stir, and add the pinch of sugar or sweetener.  Keep the sauce on medium heat with a lid, stirring occasionally.
  • Begin boiling water for your noodles.  Add 1 tsp. of salt to water. Boil noodles to al dente, as package directs.
  • While noodles boil, carefully add chicken breasts to pan and sit directly into the sauce without covering with sauce. If sauce seems too thick, stir in a few Tbsp. of pasta water to thin. Place lid on pan.
  • After 5 minutes, carefully turn chicken breasts in sauce. Add sliced mozzarella and grated parmesan to the top of each breast. Cook 5 more minutes with lid on.
  • Drain noodles, plate with sauce and chicken. Serve.
