This is my version of a recipe found on Pinterest. It's so much easier than traditional Chicken Parmesan and oh so delicious!! And it's easy to adapt based on how many people you're serving. Use 1 chicken breast per person and about 3/4 c. of sauce per chicken breast. This could easily be made in individual ramekin dishes as well. I'd love to tell you it makes great left-overs but there aren't any! My family LOVES this dish! My recipe for FABULOUS pasta sauce Loaded Veggie Pasta Sauce- slow cooker
