5-6 chicken cutlets, cubed (or 3 chicken breasts, cubed) 1 box of noodles; can use penne or bow-tie 2 eggs 1 small bowl of italian seasoning bread crumbs 1 can pasta sauce (marinara) 1 package of mozzarella cheese
Heat deep fryer to 400 degrees or place vegetable oil in a large skillet on med-high setting to heat up. Boil 4 quarts of water for noodles. Cut chicken cutlets into about 1" x 1" pieces. Dip 6 pieces of chicken at a time in egg, bread crumbs, then into fryer basket or on a separate plate if putting in skillet (Or use ziploc bag full of bread crumbs and shake more at a time). Once fryer basket/skillet is full, drop chicken pieces into oil. Let cook for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Repeat this action until all of the chicken is cooked (may take about 3 batches of chicken in fryer). Once chicken is done, place on paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil. Once water starts to boil (usually in the middle of frying chicken batches), add noodles and cook for 10-12 minutes. A few minutes later, right before the noodles are done: in a small to medium saucepan, heat up marinara sauce for about 6-8 minutes, stirring frequently. Turn on broiler to heat up for future use. Once noodles are done, drain and place equal amounts of noodles onto 4 separate plates. Place equal amounts of sauce onto each plate and mix noodles & sauce together on each plate Place equal amounts of chicken pieces onto each plate, then top it all off with a liberal amount of mozzarella cheese covering the entire dish. Place one plate into broiler for about 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown on top. Repeat with the other 3 plates, until finished. PLATES WILL BE VERY HOT!! Use pot holders at all times to handle plates. Another good suggestion might be placing pot holders or dish towels underneath each plate, so table does not burn from hot plate.
