Not just food, food with flavor

Chicken Parmesan

This week Ana asked to make chicken parmesan.  I took the easy way out and suggested we use already breaded chicken cutlets. I figured it would be easier for Ana to manage with those, given the risk of hot oil and multiple pans.  Although I did give her the option in the grocery store to get chicken breasts and carefully slice them in half.  She opted not to do it.

Ingredients

  • chicken cutlets (we had 12 cutlets for 5 people)
  • crushed tomatoes (2 28oz cans)
  • cheese (mozzarella, parmesan)
  • basil
  • oregano
  • garlic
  • pepper
  • adobo
  • spagetti
  • olive oil

 

Directions (Sauce)

1.  open crushed tomatoes

2.  pour in pot

3. heat sauce over medium heat

4. crush 4 garlic cloves into sauce

Directions (Pasta)

1. add water to pot

2. add olive oil

3. wait until boiling

4. add salt & pasta

5. stir pasta 3 minutes

6. wait 3 more minutes

7. drain & eat

 

Results

We served it with a nice salad and good bread.  Ana did a really good job.  Everybody really enjoyed it and said she could make it again.  Ana was incredibly proud of herself (as she should be) and gave herself a round of applause.  She wouldn’t let me post that picture.

One thought on “Chicken Parmesan

  1. Dagny, that looks delicious. I tried to make chicken Parmesan a few weeks ago, using a different recipe, and it was a huge mess. Next time, I will use yours
