We are winding down to the last few weeks of the school year, and I am running out of steam. That means I need fast and easy weeknight dinners that are healthy, and Weight Watchers friendly.
This One Pan Crispy Parmesan Chicken Recipe is perfect for the days when I want a fabulous, home cooked meal, without requiring a lot of effort. Another fabulous one pan meal for dinner means a lot fewer dishes to wash after dinner! This Crispy Parmesan Chicken recipe was a home run with the whole family.
The baked chicken was so juicy, and the crispy parmesan coating had a nice hint of garlic and Italian seasonings. Having the veggies coated in the same delicious mixture made them absolutely delectable, and my kids ate every last bite. My son even took leftovers to school for lunch the next day! It’s so good and so easy to make, you will not regret adding this dish to your meal plan. Enjoy!!
