This recipe is inspired by one of the newest menu items aboard the Carnival cruise ship, for their main dining room. POLLO PARMIGIANA DELLA CUCINA is described on the menu as a Boneless cutlet of chicken lightly breaded and gently fried, topped with marinara sauce and baked with mozzarella. This is my home version of that dish! I hope you enjoy it!
