The EAT MORE CHICKEN Parmesan

Updated: Jan 13

So, you’re getting back late from work (maybe the mall, lets be honest) and forgot you have some people coming over later. You want to throw together something impressive, but not too hard. That’s where The Eat More Chicken Parmesan comes in! It’s super simple (you can even use pre-made sauce) and tastes delicious.


Now I will say, despite its simplicity, you may want to make it once before. It seemed like a lot the first time, but by the second, it’s basically like making cereal… Somewhat messy cereal (not going to lie), but cereal. That being, a helping hand will prove greatly appreciated.
