Easy Cheesy Chicken Parmesan

"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.
    Family liked it. I used homemade pasta sauce and served it over rice. Thank you for a keeper....[made for Aus/UK recipe swap #19].

    Yummy! This is so quick to prepare and very yummy. We make a similar recipe to this quite often and really enjoy it. I used an egg replacer but otherwise kept to the recipe. Thank you MarthaStewartWanabe

    My bf thought this was the best dinner I have fixed for him. It was easy to put together. I served it with a salad, I forgot to fix garlic bread but it was still a great meal. Thanks for posting!

I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
