With the start of fall fast approaching, the season's coziness needn't only be relegated to the typical warm drinks of apple cider and pumpkin spice lattes. On those nights when you want something easy and something that'll hit that comfort food craving, this Chicken Parmigiana is your best bet!
Ever since I was little, family meals shared over Chicken Parmigiana, a fresh salad, and bread dipped in olive oil have induced warm, fuzzy feelings in me. Maybe it's just because these foods are simply delicious-tasting, but I choose to believe that it's the combination of these mouthwatering foods, in tandem with my loved ones, that made the experience so dear to me. And yes, though I might not be dipping any bread in olive oil these days, I was not about to lead a life where my beloved Chicken Parmigiana didn't exist.
As always, with a few tweaks here and there, one of my favorite meals (and likely soon-to-be one of yours too) was easily made nutritious and just as delicious as the recipe of my treasured memories. Whether the Chicken Parmigiana you're used to eating has you recalling meals shared in the Christmas-like ambiance of Buca di Beppo or in a similar setting, this recipe's sure to taste and leave you feeling better than its counterparts!
Speaking of minor tweaks, while you'd usually see Chicken Parmesan upon a bed of pasta, we paired ours with thinly sliced zucchini, an equally as delicious pairing!
Made with whole, fresh ingredients you foodies are sure to love, if you're still debating whether or not to try this recipe, your pantry (and likely your tastebuds too) are sure to be in favor! As usual, be sure to use fresh herbs when trying out the recipe for yourself, as doing so will maximize your enjoyment of it. Enough said - foodies, let's get cooking!
