A yummy family favourite from the Oprah show. I always add thyme and extra seasoning. Without that I find this bland. Change the veg, change the top, whatever you like. This recipe is very forgiving, I have never made it the same twice.
Have fun.

I love chicken parmesan but I never order the gooey, overly cheesy versions served at most restaurants since coming up with this version. My recipe uses all the typical components but instead of frying the breaded chicken breasts in oil, I crisp up the breadcrumbs by broiling the breaded chicken breasts for a few minutes, then topping with the sauce and the cheese and putting it back under the broiler. The result is a much lighter variation of the original with all of the crunch. I've grown to prefer the meaty almost bacon like flavor of smoked mozzarella in most situations that call for mozzarela since discovering a purveryor at my farmers market, but any kind of mozzarella will do, whether artisanal or pre-shredded from the bag.

This can also be used for making chicken fingers or nuggets. You can substitute 4 chicken things in place of the breasts. Wonderful with a large spinach salad on the side.

I came up with this a while ago, combining two recipes for chicken piccata because I didn't feel like making both.

Note - I do not know how long the prep or the cooking time is, because I don't eyeball the clock. I overguessed - prep time is probably more like 7-8 minutes and cooking time is probably no more than 12-15 minutes.

Easy to make and my 2 year old loved them. I only put half of the margarine in the nutritional info because that is all that you end up using.
