This is the way we like our chicken parmesan -- I get rave reviews everytime I serve it and always get asked for the recipe! It is a really easy recipe -- but you do need to do some of your prep the morning (or night before) you plan to serve it. Also, to shroten time, use already prepared marinara sauce. We don't like the way it tastes, so I always make mine at home, but if you like it, I think it would be just fine. Or a lot of the time, I make a huge batch of the marinara sauce and keep it in the fridge so I have it handy for this recipe, pizza or spaghetti. So you could make it the night before and then just bring it to room temp before cooking. The list of ingredients looks long (and I guess it is) but this is a really simple dish to prepare.
