Simple Chicken Parmesan

Don’t we all love Chicken Parmesan?  But it’s summer time; we don’t necessarily want to spend too much time in our kitchens, yet the family is ready to eat.  What to fix?  I developed this abbreviated version for college kids who needed simple and easy.  Give it a try!  It might just become one of your “go-to” recipes when time is tight . . . like tonight!

    Thank you! Thank you!
    I have loved reading your posts, and making a few of your recipes. At first I was printing them……..
    I have a lot of recipe books, but sad to admit, I don’t cook 🙁 very often.
    What I’m loving most is that all of these wonderful recipes are right here on my phone!!! 🙂 When I am at the grocery store– yahoo it’s all right here 🙂 and I am able to get what I need to make
    a dinner or dessert!
    I keep telling my little athletes ….
    “less meat – more veggies”
