Healthier Chicken Parmesan

Healthier chicken parmesan isn’t exactly chicken parmesan, well because you know chicken parm is nice and crispy fried with glorious bread crumbs.

My version is everything good about chicken parm but the fried goodness, because I am 40 now and my metabolism has decided to leave my body.

But to be semi honest, I don’t really miss the breading.

Try my version and you might be a convert as well. And think of it this way, you don’t have to fry anything so there is less grease splatter to clean up on your stove.
