    6                    chicken breast halves
      1/2  cup           all-purpose flour
    2                    eggs
    1      cup           dried bread crumbs (fresh will also do)
    1      teaspoon      salt
      1/2  teaspoon      onion powder
      1/4  teaspoon      garlic powder
      1/4  teaspoon      paprika
      1/2  cup           chopped onions
    1      to 2          crushed cloves of garlic
    2      (8-oz)        cans of tomato sauce
      1/2  teaspoon      oregano
      1/2  teaspoon      basil
      1/4  cup           olive oil
      2/3  cup           Parmesan cheese (fresh grated if possible)
    8      ounces        mozzarella cheese
 Using a meat mallet flatten each chicken breast into an oval shape. Get out
 three bowls and put the flour in the first one. Lightly beat the eggs in the
 second bowl. In the third bowl, combine the bread crumbs with the salt,
 onion powder, garlic powder and paprika. Dip the flattened chicken breasts
 first into the flour, then into the beaten eggs, and finally cover well with
 the seasoned crumbs. Place each prepared chicken breast on a rack and put
 them in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let the coating set. 
 Prepare the Sauce:
 Make an italian-seasoned tomato sauce by first lightly sauteing the chopped
 onion and garlic and then adding the two cans of tomato sauce, the oregano,
 and basil. Simmer for 20 minutes. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and
 saute the chicken breasts until they aregolden brown and then arrange them
 in a shallow baking dish. Pour the sauce over the chicken breasts, spreading
 so they are lightly covered with the sauce. Top with the grated parmesan
 cheese and bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Slice the mozzarella cheese into
 then slices. Remove the baking dish from the oven and arrange on top of the
 chicken. Return to the oven for another 10 minutes to melt the mozzarella
 and serve.
