I know I’ve talked about my love for Italian food here.
I’m telling ya – meats and pastas are just darn right delicious!! Do you agree?? Any time I see an Olive Garden commercial my mouth starts to salivate, and I’m doing that yet again as I think about this Chicken Parmigiana my mom and I tried before we moved to Texas. It was so good and comes from the famous Ree Drummond. We loved the recipe and decided it was another keeper dinner idea. It was easy to make and ended up being a hit with the entire family.
If you’re a fan of Italian food and easy (AND delicious) recipes, you’ll definitely want to give this Chicken Parmigiana a try!
