1/3   cup   chopped onion
1      clove garlic, minced
1    tablespoon   butter or margarine
1    14 1/2ounce can  diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2   teaspoon   sugar
1/8   teaspoon   salt
    dash black pepper
1/4   cup   snipped fresh basil
4      skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1 to 1-1/4 pounds)
1/3   cup   seasoned fine dry bread crumbs
3    tablespoons   grated Parmesan cheese
1/2   teaspoon   dried oregano, crushed
1      beaten egg
2    tablespoons   milk
3    tablespoons   olive oil or cooking oil
1/4   cup   shredded mozzarella cheese (1 ounce)
1    tablespoon   grated Parmesan cheese
For sauce, in a medium saucepan cook onion and garlic in hot butter until onion is tender. Carefully stir in the undrained tomatoes, sugar, salt, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or to desired consistency, stirring occasionally. Stir in basil. Keep warm.
Meanwhile, with a meat mallet, pound each chicken breast half between two pieces of plastic wrap to 1/4-inch thickness.
In a shallow dish stir together bread crumbs, the 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, and oregano. In another bowl stir together the egg and milk. Dip chicken breast halves in egg mixture, then in crumb mixture to coat. In a 12-inch skillet cook chicken in hot oil over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Transfer chicken to a serving platter.
Spoon sauce over chicken. Top with shredded mozzarella and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Let stand about 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Makes 4 servings.
Veal Parmigiana:
Prepare as above, except substitute 1 pound boneless veal sirloin steak or boneless veal leg round steak, cut 1/2-inch thick for the chicken breast halves. Cut meat into 4, serving-size pieces and pound to 1/4-inch thickness as above.

Creamy Tomato Chicken Parmigiana:
Prepare as above, except after simmering the sauce for 10 minutes or to desired consistency, slowly add 3 tablespoons whipping cream, half-and-half, or light cream, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 3 minutes more and then stir in the basil.
