Put one slice of Mozzarella cheese on each breast .Add ½ the sauce and repeat cheese and sauce layer. Cover and Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes . Top with grated parmesan before serving. You can serve with any pasta roasted veggies or a nice salad.

Low Fat Version
Make the sauce. Skip the whole breading and frying step. Place raw chicken in a 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle chicken with grated mozzarella cheese top with sauce and bake at 350 for 40 -45 minutes.
Can top with a little parmesan cheese before serving. Enjoy.
This lowfat version makes a great freezer meal just prepare instead of baking cover and freeze. Thaw in refrigerator overnight and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
