30 minute Chicken Parmesan

melissa harris


My kids expect spaghetti once a week, and I needed a change.
This turned out so good, I will definitely makes this again and again!
I just created this quick version using Italian baked chicken breasts and threw together things I had lying around to make a marinara sauce. It turned out great!
