READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by MarthaStewartWanabe

This is a quick, easy way to make chicken parmesan. The chicken breasts are baked--not fried--so I like to think it's a healthier version. Enjoy!

What a quick and delicious meal this recipe makes. I used chicken breast tenders because that was what I had on hand. The chicken was very moist and tender. You don't need a knife to cut this chicken, it cuts easily with your fork. I breaded and cooked the chicken for about 25 minutes and then topped it with the cheeses, the sauce and another topping of the cheese. Then I stuck it back in the oven for the remaining 5 minutes to melt the cheese. Delicious!!! Made for December, 2008 Aussie/NZ Swap.
