The Best Chicken Scaloppine

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

This is such a good recipe for chicken parmesan with a tangy tomato herb sauce. I have been making it for years and it is always a favorite.

Very delicious and easy to make. I needed a very simple dish since I had very few ingredient on hand, I didn't use any cheese at all and I only had tomatoe suace instead of diced. Served it on a bed of gnocchi. The chicken was really good, such a great dish, hardly any mess to clean up. I will make it again soon.
