Chicken Parmesan Recipe

Chicken parmesan is a juicy, cheesy, saucy one-dish meal that's great for lunch or dinner.

I love that this dish can be customized in so many different ways to suit everyone's taste, time, effort and budget. You can make this with frozen cutlets instead of making your own, you can bake the cutlets instead of frying them, you can use bottled sauce instead of making your own, you can use grated mozzarella instead of the buffalo mozzarella that I have used.


You can serve this with spaghetti or a side of steamed veggies.
