Easy Chicken Parmesan


Trying to get back into real life after being away for a week is tough. There are so many emails, phone calls, and things to catch up on for the schools, and kids. I love the peaceful rejuvenated feeling I have when I am away. Now I need to work on keeping it while I am home.  One of the ways to do that is to keep trying to find simple ways to feed my family dinners and treats that they will want to eat and are super simple to make.

Chicken breast prices have been dropping here. So, there will be quite a few chicken breast recipes this month! I was able to pick up large family sized packages for $1.59 a pound. That is slightly more than a dime less than the best sale price we usually see. Not much but it adds up when I buy 25-30 pounds of chicken.

Verdict:

We did not miss the fried chicken or coating for the Chicken Parmesan. If you notice this recipe has no real measurements. This was a I need dinner now and if I cut the chicken into strips it will cook faster AND angel hair pasta cooks really fast. Dinner was ready in under 30 minutes and everyone was really happy with simple pasta sauce and baked chicken.

I served this with a green side salad and green beans to complete the meal.
