Let's Make It
1
In medium bowl, mix bread crumbs, paprika, chili powder, Cajun seasoning and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Set aside.
2
In a sauce pan, sauté onions, celery and peppers for 3 minutes in oil. Add tomatoes; sauté for another 2 minutes. Add chicken broth, remaining black pepper, garlic, basil, oregano, thyme and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer uncovered, stirring frequently about 30 minutes. Cover and remove from heat.
3
While sauce is cooking, in a medium sized frying pan, bring oil to about 350 degrees over med-high heat. Coat chicken in bread crumb mixture. Fry chicken in several batches until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Check for doneness. Set on paper towel to drain.
4
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cooked chicken in bottom of a rectangular oven-proof casserole dish. Sprinkle 2 cups pepper jack cheese over the chicken. Bake 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
5
While chicken is in oven, add butter to sauce and stir until mixed thoroughly. Remove chicken from oven and spoon sauce over the top to serve.
6
Optional: Sauce can be served on the side and spooned on individual servings.
