Smokin’ Mary Chicken Parmigiana
- 4 boneless skinless breasts
- 1 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
- 4 Tbsp butter
- 2 cups of Smokin’ Mary Mix
- 4 slices mozzarella cheese

To make the chicken breast more tender, pound them with a meat mallet before preparing this dish. Place them between sheets of wax paper or plastic wrap before pounding for easy clean up.
Soak the 4 chicken breasts in the milk. In a shallow dish, combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Dredge (coat) the breast in the bread crumb mixture. Place the breast in a well-greased baking dish. Top each breast with 1 teaspoon of butter.
Bake the chicken breast for 25 minutes. Remove them from the oven, top each breast with 1/2 cup of Smoking’ Mary mix and a 1 slice of mozzarella cheese, and return back to the oven. Continue baking for 10 minutes, or until the Smokin’ Mary mix is bubbly and cheese has melted.
