    Lainey6605's Note:

    This is my version of chicken parmigiana. The sweet sauce is what sends this recipe over the top although the chicken parmigiana is excellent as well! I developed this sauce after tasting various versions of my Italian friends' sauces and getting their recipes. My family likes a sweet sauce so if you don't like it sweet, just omit the sugar. I do recommend that you add a little sugar, though, to remove some of the acidity taste from the sauce. Quite frankly, if you don't like a sweet sauce, though, you might be better off trying another recipe because that is why I developed this version. I usually let the sauce simmer for most of the day until I am ready to make the chicken parmigiana. However, the sauce can be ready as fast as an hour if you need it to be. But the longer the sauce simmers, the more delicious and thick it will be! This recipe does make more sauce than is needed for the chicken parmigiana and the side of spaghetti or angel hair, but I just freeze the remaining sauce and use it for another time. This is also the basic recipe I use to serve over any type of pasta. I even use it on pizza!

      Don't be put off the seemingly lengthy list of's a lot more simplistic than it looks...and it doesn't really require much effort to produce a tasty meal. This recipe makes a lot of sauce,so plenty left to freeze up for a quick fix dinner..always a bonus!! The chicken was beautifully moist and full of flavour,beautifully complimented by the sauce and cheese. Thanks Lainey!

      Delicious sauce that was great for this type of dish. The chicken was golden brown and tender, and the sauce and cheese sent it to another level for us. We loved it! Thanks Lainey!
