Ingredients

1 1/3
cups hot water
1 1/2
cups milk
2
tablespoons butter
1
box Chicken Helper™ crispy Parmesan chicken
1
lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1
tablespoon milk
2
tablespoons butter
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
1
cup tomato pasta sauce
1/4
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (1 oz)
Fresh basil leaves, if desired

  • 1 In 2-quart nonstick saucepan, stir hot water, 1 1/2 cups milk, 2 tablespoons butter, and the sauce mix and uncooked pasta (from Chicken Helper box). Heat just to boiling, stirring frequently.

  • 3 Place chicken in medium bowl. Add 1 tablespoon milk to moisten. Add seasoned crumbs (from Chicken Helper box) to coat chicken.
  • 4 In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons butter and the oil over medium heat until butter is melted. Carefully add chicken to hot butter mixture; cook 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown. Reduce heat to medium-low. Turn chicken, cook 4 to 6 minutes longer or until golden brown and centers are no longer pink.
  • 5 In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave pasta sauce uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes or until hot. To serve, place chicken on individual plates. Spoon pasta sauce over chicken; sprinkle with cheese. Serve with pasta.
