  • Heat oil and Spice World Peeled Garlic in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until garlic starts to sizzle. Stir in tomatoes, basil, oregano, and sugar; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer; cook until sauce slightly thickens and flavors meld, 10 to 12 minutes. Cover and keep warm. (Remember, this makes twice the amount of sauce needed, so put aside half for another meal.)
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and keep warm.
  • Lay chicken pieces between two sheets of plastic wrap. Use a mallet or heavy pan to pound chicken to about ¼-inch thickness.
  • Beat eggs in a shallow dish until well blended. Season bread crumbs with black pepper in another shallow dish.
  • Preheat the oven broiler to high. Place a rack 4 to 5 inches from the heat source.
  • Working with one cutlet at a time, dip chicken in beaten egg, then in bread crumbs. Lay breaded cutlets on a wire rack set over a cookie sheet (this step helps the breading stay put).
  • Heat 1/4 cup oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers.
  • Fry breaded cutlets in hot oil until golden brown on each side, about 5 minutes total. Wash and dry the wire rack, and return it to the cookie sheet. Place the fried cutlets on the clean wire rack.
  • Top each cutlet with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Broil until the cheese melts and is spotty brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Portion pasta onto 4 plates and top each with a chicken cutlet. Spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of tomato sauce over each cutlet, then sauce the pasta as desired. Serve with extra Parmesan at the table.
