Mmm….parmesan chicken. This is a recipe that my Mom has been making for quite a long time. And it’s been a family favorite as well as comfort food for me since I was young. The great part is that it calls for plenty of great butter….yum! I’ve gone and made a few changes to it and made it for the first time tonight in a long time and remembered just how delicious it is!!
I make this using homemade breadcrumbs from gluten free bread and it works really well. But you can also use regular homemade whole wheat breadcrumbs as well and both work very well. If you want to make it grain free, then use some almond meal instead. That works very well too!
I love pairing this dish with mashed or roasted potatoes and some veggies for a really amazing dinner.
