About

Chicken Parmesan is a true Italian comfort food! It is great to serve at a dinner party. I love to eat Chicken Parmesan, with a fresh green salad and some crunchy garlic bread! It is time consuming, but Chicken Parmesan can be made days in advance. I make 2 batches and freeze one for another meal!
