Well it's been entirely to long since we've talked about Chicken Parmesan on this blog, eh? Just to catch you up, it's still Brandon's favorite and I still don't trip over myself to make it.
I think it's the pounding of the chicken that gets me.
And confession: It's really hard for me to blawg about chicken Parmesan because I think I've written about it 12 times before.
Anywho. This chicken parm recipe is solid. It's pretty quick, quite tasty, Brandon approved and cheesy. But like cheesy gooey not cheesy awkward. Boil up some pasta and throw together a salad and you will be done. And people will be impressed. And you'll be happy and full and ready for stretch pants. Stretch pants, by the by, is my favorite thing to be ready for. This is probably the least surprising thing you've read all day, huh?
I made the choice to not use any reduced fat type stuff in this recipe. I do not regret this choice one bit, real cheese is the best cheese...that's for damn sure. Consider this my attempt at clean eating. We'll call it clean enough or sorta clean.
