    I used to make chicken Parmesan very often b/c my brother loved it. My recipe was very simple. Essentially, I dipped chicken breasts in beaten egg and then in Italian flavor bread crumbs. I put them in a baking dish with pasta sauce(flavor of choice) and baked for about 25 min. I sprinkle with Italian blend shredded cheese and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve with garlic bread.

    I’ve never made chicken parm without breading…this looks just as good and a bit quicker. I’ll have to try it.

    It sure looks delicious in your picture. It also sounds easy to make. So I could probably manage it. Unfortunatly I don’t have any zucchini :( If I did that would be in the over right now. I think my hubby would really like it.

    Sounds great! Chicken Parmesan is one of my fave dishes but it’s usually really hard to make or at least time consuming, this recipe sounds easy enough.
