This is one of my favorite recipes to make on a cold day in January.
Indeed, chicken Parmesan has always been one of my favorite dishes. Whether serving with pasta or making a hero on Italian bread, it always hits the spot. My daughter could literally eat this every day. It has been her favorite since she was 2. Enjoy.
