Three Cheese Baked Chicken Parmesan

This was a wonderful dinner that I made during the week for a tasty Italian dinner using chicken breasts and some leftover pasta sauce that I had.

Three Cheese Baked Chicken Parmesan

3 chicken breasts
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

Soak chicken breasts in buttermilk for 15 minutes.  Combine all the bread  crumbs and spices in a bowl.  Dip chicken in crumbs and place on a greased baking dish.  Bake for 30 minutes at 325°.  

Cook 8 oz of your favorite pasta - I used fettuccine.  Place in a greased baking dish.  Place baked chicken breasts on top.  Cover each breast with 1/4 - 1/3 cup of your favorite pasta sauce on top.  Cover each breast with a combination of Fontina, Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.  Bake in the over for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted at 350°.
