1/3 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced

Mix together flour, seasoned salt, and pepper on a large plate. Dredge chicken in flour. Heat oil and butter in a large cast-iron skillet on medium heat. Cook chicken on each side, until golden brown. Depending on the size of the chicken, you may need to do this in multiple steps. Remove chicken and keep warm. 

Add onion and garlic to skillet and cook for 2 minutes. Pour in wine and stir occasionally until reduced by half, 3-4 minutes. Add tomatoes, sugar, salt and pepper, parsley and basil. Allow to cook for 20-30 minutes. Lay chicken breasts on top of the sauce and cover them with cheese. Place skillet under broiler and cook for 1-2 minutes until cheese is lightly browned. 

Serve sauce and chicken over prepared noodles. Garnish with more parsley if desired. Serves 4-6.
