Baked Chicken Parmesan

Being part Italian I LOVE my pasta and anything Italian. While I admit it’s not the most healthy food I thought I would try baking it instead of pan frying it and I was shocked it came out crispy and really good, not to mention with a little one running around it’s an easy dish to prep ahead of time and pop in the oven rather then standing over the stove. This for sure will be a repeat when I get my craving!
