Chicken Parm Lasagna


Okay, so this was NOT the prettiest meal I have ever made but it was good! We had some extra time where everyone was home for one evening so I wanted to have a special meal. This takes a bit of preparation but I was also able to prep some meals for later while making this. Pound down a bunch of chicken, fry up a few extra pieces for meals later in the week, or even prep your veggies for the next few meals while this cooks!

Verdict:

This was a hit. Next time I need to remember that I need to pound down the chicken a bit thinner but other than that it was delicious. The kids even asked for the pan-fried chicken in another dish they liked it so much.  This is a VERY hearty dish so one small piece per person is more than enough and this makes a 13 x 9 pan so you will have plenty of leftovers to freeze or for lunches.

I served this with a antipasto salad as a side.
