I always try to eat delicious food. Unfortunately I don't have that much money, so I have to cook a lot of it at home. But thats OK because I love cooking and I love eating at home with my wife. This is a website with my favorite recipes and a little bit of commentary.

Chicken Parmesan

Last night we had one of my all time favorite chicken dishes. Its so tasty that it borders on sinful. If I were you I wouldn't bring this recipe to a church pot luck. You're likely to need re-baptizing after that. It would be scandelous to be sure.

Chicken Parmesan a la Koko

3 chicken breasts.
Olive oil

1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
½ cup parmesan cheese
½ cup bread crumbs (English muffins preferred, but can use croutons ground up or crackers or whatever)
4 T melted butter.

Some kind of marinara sauce to put over the top.
1 piece proscuitto per piece of chicken (you can substitute pancetta or thinly sliced ham)
1 small handful of mozzarella per piece of chicken

1) Wash and dry chicken well
2) Combine coating ingredients in a bowl.
3) Lightly coat a baking dish/pan with olive oil
4) Lightly coat each chicken piece with olive oil and coat real well with crumbs. Place a piece of proscuito on top of each piece of bird.
5) Roast the chicken at 350 until it's crisp, browned, and cooked through, 45-50 minutes min.
6) Put a scoop of marinara on top of each bird and sprinkle with mozzarella. Return to the oven until cheese is melted.
