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.
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!
