Chicken Parmesan

This happens to be one of my husband Anthony's favorite meals. I didn't have a recipe for Chicken Parmesan and found this in a Penzey's Spice Magazine last year in 2010. It is an incredible recipe and my husband loves it. Now, since I've been working with this recipe I have changed some things, added more sauce and adjusted it to our liking. One process you want to get for sure is the chicken is to be fried to make a crispy coating before baking in the oven. This is a very flavorful meal and feel free to use you own favorite marinara sauce with it.
