Another Chicken Parmesan - The One I Like
July 13, 2014
"One more delicious recipe from HEP MEP who unfortunately is no longer with us. Her description: " This is from the 365 Ways To Cook Chicken cookbook. I've made the tomato sauce a few times, but I'm usually just lazy and buy a jar of marinara sauce. The option is yours. I also sometimes make the chicken without the addition of sauce and mozzarella - real easy and real tasty." My review from 2009: This recipe was made on 7/11/09 for the HEP MEP " Cook- A- Thon. There's only two of us, so I used two chicken breasts and made the full amount of the sauce.( I like to use leftover sauces for other meals ). This was such an easy recipe to follow. After eating, both my SO and I thought it could use something to give it a " kick ".So next time, I'm adding a bit of crushed red pepper flakes. " We'll miss you so much MEP. " Keep Smiling :) " I would suggest making the sauce ahead of time,that way the sauce has time to simmer and the flavors meld. Re posted to " ZAAZ " on July 13th.2014 " Keep Smiling :)"
