With this recipe, I've found it is much easier to cook when you have a helper! That way they can cook the chicken and the other person can start assembling everything else. Enjoy!

We loved the combination of this succulent Parmesan crusted chicken and creamy risotto. What a comforting, satisfying meal. The Parmesan chicken is so juicy and tender. If you're in a pinch and don't want to make a true risotto, give this recipe a try. The tomatoes add another dimension of tangy flavor to the risotto. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
