Chicken Parmesan Bake
This isn’t your traditional chicken parmesan. By omitting the frying this dish is more healthful and very easy to throw together. If you are in a hurry you could use jarred sauce rather than making your own and save 15 minutes. Serve on top of your favorite pasta.
To make this #dinnerdoneby9am I assemble through where the chicken is placed in the dish with the sauce, refrigerate all day and bake just prior to serving.
