IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

Tired of the eating our staple chicken cutlets, I decided to give it a fresh look and made chicken Parmigiana last night instead.
A couple of spoonful of tomato sauce, a staple in my refrigerator, over the chicken,  adding a slice of fresh mozzarella over it, a new dinner was prepared.
Chicken breast pounded thin are wonderful with it also.
I love mozzarella and therefore I did cut my mozzarella too thick and it did not melt as fast as I wished. Chopped or thinner slices would be fine.
Tomatoes sauce of your liking. The variation of this dish are endless.
I like to stay close to my Italian roots when it comes to tomatoes sauce, light and simple.
