this was really good and easy. I added the parmasean cheese to the bread crumbs before frying the chicken and used home made sauce. Thanks for a great dinner idea
The chicken parmesan was very easy to make. I liked that it didn't require a lot of ingredients. I cooked my chicken steaks on the George Foreman grill which made it even faster.
I love to cook and experiment with new recipes and this one was loved by each and every member of my family. It was easy to fix and taste delicious so we will definitely be enjoying it again.
