This recipe is updated from the Chicken Parmigiana Recipe from years ago. Its still just as delicious and just as pain free for cooking as it gets.

Load up your lightly buttered and crisped rolls with your perfectly tender chicken, for a meal that everyone can enjoy for a few days (that is if there is any left over).

You can also make it an Italian weeks worth of dinners by adding Mozzarella Chicken with Homemade sauce to a night and Chicken Parmesan Fingers, a recipe your kids will love. Unless of course they are like my kids and only eat baked chicken nuggets…so I have that recipe too!
