A comforting classic that won’t make you want to lie down for a long winter nap. One of the easiest way to lighten up meat (and especially Italian meat) dishes is to bake the meat, rather than fry. Not to worry! Your chicken Parmesan will still turn out deliciously juicy and flavorful. Serve over whole wheat pasta, as shown, or solo, with a large side salad, to cut down the carbohydrates even further.
This chicken parm recipe is a family favorite. It’s so simple it’s almost criminal; my husband raves about it every single time, though, and serving this entree guarantees that our two year-old clears her plate. Make it for your own family, or serve it to company for maximum “Ooh” and “Aah” results with minimal effort! As a busy mom, it’s hard to beat a tried-and-true 30-minute meal.
