Easy Weeknight Chicken Parmigiana from All You Magazine #LifeForLess
Yesterday I shared a simple ham recipe that should be on your Easter table this year ( HERE ) and all of the things I like about All You Magazine. When I was flipping through to plan my menu for the week I found a simple, pared down version of my husbands all time favorite meal that was perfect for busy weeknights- Easy Weeknight Chicken Parmigiana.
This particular recipe included ingredients that I already had on hand actually. I am always well stocked in Red Gold Tomato Sauce, I always have chicken in the freezer and red wine- you KNOW I always have wine on hand ????
This quick and Easy Weeknight Chicken Parmigiana dish can be modified in a few ways although I didn’t stray from the printed recipe. Want heat? Add a teaspoon of red pepper flakes to the sauce. Want to save a few pennies? Use boneless skinless chicken thighs. Want to make a complete meal? Serve with a green veggie, a tossed salad (I literally used a bagged pre-made salad-gasp!) and make a tiny bit of pasta to serve as a bed for the chicken. The options are varied here but the bottom line is this recipe is easy, healthier than the standard chicken parm and cheap. My guesstimate is that this meal cost $2.90 a serving. You can’t beat that with a stick!!
