Chicken parmesan with roasted broccoli and asiago cheese

First off I have to give some major credit to a friend of mine Dwayne.  He gave me the recipe fo for the broccoli and it was amazing.  Thanks Dwayne.

Chicken parmesan (yield 4)

4          large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1cup    fine bread crumbs
1          large egg
2tbsp   milk
8-10     slices of mozzarella cheese
1can    pizza sause
1/2cup grated parmesan cheese
            olive oil
            salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 425.  In an medium bowl, beat egg and milk together until well blended.  Dump the bread crumbs into another bowl an lightly season them with salt and pepper.  Dip chicken breast in the egg mix and then into dredge them in the bread crumbs.  Be sure to cover the chicken well.  Heat some olive oil in a pan over medium high heat.  Brown the breaded chicken breasts (about 2-3 minutes per side) and then place them in a baking pan.  Place the mozzarella cheese on the chicken breasts (about 2-3 slices per breast should do).  Cover each breast with about 2 tbsp of pizza sauce.  Sprinkle the chicken with the parmesan cheese.  Bake for about 35 minutes.  Remove from oven and lets stand for 2 minutes before serving.

roasted broccoli and asiago cheese

1          large broccoli crown
4tbsp   olive oil
1cup    grated asiago cheese
            salt & pepper

Pre-heat oven to 425.  Rinse and cut the broccoli into bite sized pieces.  Dry the broccoli.  Put in a bowl and toss with olive oil.  Season well with salt and pepper.  Spread the broccoli on a baking sheet and bake at 425 for 25 minutes.  The broccoli should start to have a few little brown areas on it.  Remove broccoli and return it to the bowl where you tossed it with olive oil.  Add the asiago cheese and toss until the cheese melts over the broccoli.  Serve with the chicken.

I also usually make this with an alfredo pasta but you could do roast potatoes or rice with it as well.  I hope you enjoy this.
