Your Italian Grandmother would be proud

While watching my housemate prepare a dinner for her boyfriend I became inspired.Image

Chicken Parmesan is a delicious meal that is considered by most to be a treat. With its cheesy, saucy ingredients and a generous side of penne, it is definitely a popular comfort food.

Good news! This treat doesn’t have to also be a cheat.

With well selected ingredients and a good portion size, this meal can easily fit into your balanced diet.

Hopefully some of my readers have kitchens with stoves because I am not sure this dish will have the same “just like at home” effect from a microwave.

I snooped around on the internet and found a great recipe on Skinnytaste.com. You can find a list of ingredients and step-by-step directions to prepare your dinner right here

When you pick up your ingredients be mindful of how many mouths you’re trying to serve! Also, if you’re like me, and don’t eat chicken this dish is great using eggplant as a substitute!Image

With the recipe as is some of the nutrition facts are: Calories: 224.5 • Fat: 8.6 g • Protein: 25 g • Carb: 14 g • Fiber: 1.5 g- for a regular dinner that calorie count is not bad at all, especially since the chicken is giving you so much protein.

If you’re looking for a little extra serve your chicken with pasta, you might want to try a whole/multi grain variety, available from most popular brands!

Bon Appetit!

    Your beat is interesting and easy to mine for two posts a week, but you have to involved other people. Interviews with chefs or people who lost a ton of weight or have a great exercise plan that allows them to also eat six candy bars a day, something like that.
