Baked Chicken Parmesan

2 chicken breasts- cut into two steaks each with about 1/2 inch thickness
1 cup aurora Italian style breadcrumbs with cheese
1 egg beaten with a little cream
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp butter melted with a few cloves minced garlic
1 jar President's Choice Marinara sauce
Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
Basil leaves

Set up a breading station with a bowl with flour, in another bowl the breadcrumbs, and the beaten egg and cream in another. First dredge the chicken steak in flour, shaking off excess, then dip it in the egg cream mixture again shaking off excess, and finally roll it in the breadcrumbs , making sure it is well coated. Place the steaks in an oven proof dish, which has been sprayed with PAM. Once all the steaks are in the dish, drizzle them with the melted butter and place in a preheated oven at 375 C for about 30 minutes or until cooked. Midway, take the dish out and flip over each steak.
Once cooked, place in an oven proof serving dish, and pour over the marinara sauce and the sliced or shredded fresh cheese on top and place under the broiler for about 8 minutes or until light golden brown and bubbly.

Serve the delicious chicken with some steamed veggies, pasta or mashed potatoes.
