Continuing with my love for chicken, I introduce you to my favorite go-to chicken recipe called Easy Chicken Parmesan. It is definitely easy and quick. I even cooked this recipe so much our first year of marriage that Brandon told me to give it a rest.

I discovered this recipe while I was in high school. I tried it out on my mama several times. I also tried it once on Brandon and his family while we were dating. I was under the impression that Brandon and I were going to cook it together. However, I ended up cooking dinner with his mom while Brandon and his brother left to ride horses. The evening turned out to be pretty productive because I learned several cooking tips from his mom and everyone really enjoyed the meal.

The recipe that I used for tonight’s meal came from a local church’s cookbook that I inserted while we were dating. The original recipe came from Kraft, which can be found on this link.

For the ingredients, you will need chicken breasts or tenders (I prefer tenders or if I am using breasts, I cut them up into large chunks.), 1 jar of pasta sauce, 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, 6 Tbsp of Parmesan cheese, and hot cooked pasta (I prefer rotini pasta, but the recipe calls for spaghetti.). My favorite part of this dish is the chicken and the cheese. I believe cheese will make any dish better. I used the only pasta sauce I had available, which was a large can of pasta sauce. However, I think a chunky pasta sauce would enhance the dish because this sauce was too watered-down and didn’t stick well to the pasta.

For a tip to keep the pasta from sticking together, I always drizzle about 1/2 Tbsp of olive oil once the pasta has been drained. Give it a good stir and set the bowl to the side while the chicken is cooking. This tip will help when you have leftovers.

I love how this picture has a glow about it, like God delivered it from Heaven himself. Your family will not be disappointed when you cook this meal. It is perfect for little kids and picky adult eaters.
