I absolutely love chicken parmesan, but I don’t love the calories associated with frying the chicken. This version of the classic Italian dish involves baking the chicken which helps to reduce that calorie count. It’s a quick enough dish to serve during the week and can be very kid friendly. I served it with a green veggie medley over a bed of pasta.
