Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan

Introduction

This is a simple recipe that tastes amazing, it is also better than any traditional chicken Parmesan I had tried. When you consider it's lower in fat, takes about 10 minutes to put together, it's no wonder why this is my new favorite recipe.

    Absolutely awesome. EVERYONE loved this. I made it exactly as written except added more of each ingredient because my family is large. We will definitely be making this often. Actually I couldn't find plain garlic croutons so I ended up with cheese-garlic croutons. Try this recipe, you'll love it! - 2/7/10

    This was awesome, and easy! I made a double batch. One for us and one for a friend who just came back from the hospital after finding out her 12yr old has diabetes. We (the neighborhood ladies) Are going to show her how easy it is to make healthy, easy meals for her family. Thanks Spark People!! - 2/21/10

  • I loved, I'm in love with chicken parmesan. But I was the only one that liked.. my kid doesn't like red sauce and my husband thought the chicken was not cooked enough and the croutons were a little burned. Oh well can't make everybody happy. Thanks for sharing I loved. - 10/17/12

  • This worked really well (used Biggest Loser Marinara Sauce recipe).

    Chicken was cooked through and moist, croutons worked well and cheese etc.

    I do think I'll use some extra sauce next time though.

    So - a keeper:) - 1/4/12

  • THIS WAS YUMMY, BUT NEXT TIME I WILL MAKE WITH STRIPS AND USE A TAD MORE CHEESE ON TOP. THIS WILL MAKE FOR LESS COOKING TIME. I HAD TO COOK LONGER TO GET THE CHICKEN DONE AND THEN THE CHEESE GOT A BIT HARD. IT WAS GOOD AND THERE WILL BE A NEXT TIME. - 10/15/11

  • This was really fabulous! I used a whole jar of marinara sauce and didn't quite use all 12 oz of cheese. The chicken was very juicy and the flavor was wonderful. I didn't have fresh basil, so I just sprinkled dried basil on it. My fiance told me he definitely wants me to make this again! - 9/7/11
