    Pull out the legs on the Crisper Tray, then place the tray in the elevated position in the pot and lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray.

    To prepare the dredging station, add the flour to a medium bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add the egg to a separate medium bowl and whisk. In a third medium bowl, add the breadcrumbs.

    Dredge both sides of the chicken in the flour, then dip in the egg, and then in the breadcrumbs. Place the chicken on top the tray.

    Select SPEEDI MEALS, set temperature to 375°F, and set time to 15 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (the unit will steam for approximately 10 minutes before crisping).

  • Step 7

    When 5 minutes remain, open lid and top chicken with mozzarella cheese. Close lid to continue cooking.

  • Step 8

    When cooking is complete, transfer chicken to a plate. Then use silicone-tipped tongs to grab the center handle and remove the tray from the unit. Add tomato sauce to pasta and stir to combine. Transfer pasta to the plate with chicken. Garnish with basil as desired.
