Crunchy chicken Parmesan that your family will love. Everyone I have made this for has told me it's the best chicken Parmesan ever. Serve over your favorite pasta with your favorite sauce (I use marinara). Sometimes I sprinkle mozzarella cheese over my chicken as well as the Parmesan. I also garnish with chopped fresh basil.

I received this recipe several years ago from a family member who swore it was a great romantic meal. She was right. My husband asks me to make this meal every time we have a date night. The quantity of ingredients look intimidating, but don't let them fool you. It's easy and delicious! The whipping cream gives it a creamy texture that you just can't get enough of!

In this lighter version of chicken Parmesan I skip the pan-frying in oil and instead bake lightly-breaded chicken breasts in the oven, then top with sauce and cheese. My family's not big on lots of sauce and cheese, so I just use a little to flavor the dish. Feel free to add more if you like, but it's excellent as-is. Serve chicken over pasta with additional sauce.
