How’s it going peeps? I hope all is well! Tonight I am sharing with you my recipe for chicken parmesan. I do some prep work on the weekend so I can just throw this together quickly during the week. This was a very popular dinner. Everyone ate every bite, my husband had seconds. This will definitely be part of my meal planning schedule. I especially love it because it literally takes 5 minutes to put together if I do some prep work on Sunday.
We normally have spaghetti and meatballs on Sunday. If not spaghetti some sort of pasta dish. When I make the Hidden Veggie Pasta Sauce for that meal I make sure to make enough so that there is leftover to use with this dish. I also pound out the chicken breast, dredge them in flour, then egg wash, then breadcrumbs and fry them off. This is key to saving time during the week.
When I get home from work I simply coat the bottom of a baking dish with sauce, then I put the prepped chicken on top, top that with sauce and cheese, and then bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes until it is hot all the way through. You could boil up some pasta or saute some veggies to serve along side. A nice crisp salad would be great too and would have probably looked better in pictures. Oh well, next time I make it I’ll take some better photos =)
