Gather the family up because Chicken Parmesan is on the Sweet As Pie Cooking Club menu! I was excited to try this already and was even more excited after reading Kristin's post at Life is So-Kool . She said they had searched for a good Chicken Parm recipe and this one is kool!
Finally, all the college students that come in and out of my house were going to be in on the same night and I thought everyone would enjoy this. And we did!
The PW pounded the chicken thin, but I chose to slice each breast in two with a sharp knife. I do this pretty much any time we have boneless chicken breasts because they are ususally HUGE!
Add the chicken to the melted butter and olive oil. I skipped the flour dredge, not necessary in my opinion. That one breast is still too big!
The Bassman had started the dreaded task of opening the pool and had just settled into his comfy recliner when I asked him to open the wine. But he didn't mind. And you can see there's MORE strawberries there in the background. I just can't believe how good they have been this spring...unfortunately that is the last local basket until next year!
While he opened the wine, I started on the grated parmesan cheese. I have converted from the stuff in the container to the wedge in the deli cheese section. It is hard to find in my Publix so did everybody in town convert?
The chicken is done...
And I had lots of this...
Get over it and move on to the onions, garlic and wine! I was a little concerned that since I skipped the flour dredge there wouldn't be many browned flavor crumbs on the bottom of the pan, but there was plenty.
Add the tomatoes and simmer.
While that's simmering, prepare asparagus for roasting and steam the broccoli. We love it.
By now the family has circled through the kitchen grabbing at the pile of cheese! Add the chicken back into the pan and top with cheese.
Now everybody wash up, it's time to eat!
Thanks to Kristin and her hubby, for this selection! This is good!
