I've made a lot of chicken parmesan and this is the one I'll be making from now on. Not only is it the best but it really is the easiest. Good enough for company. I didn't have marinara so I threw some red and yellow peppers, bit of onion and some garlic into the food processor, then added tomato sauce. Five stars to this one!
