A Make Ahead Chicken Parmesan for Busy FamiliesChicken Parmesan is a favorite dinner in the Just One Donna house. It's also a favorite restaurant selection. I like to keep Chicken Parmesan prepared in my freezer for those busy weeknights when we might be tempted to head to a restaurant instead of eating at home. That way, we'll have a delicious dinner all ready to go into the oven, and save money to boot. What's not to like about that?
|Easy Freezer Chicken Parmesan for Dinner|
This Chicken Parmesan recipe is made with readily accessible ingredients in the spirit of semi-homemade. You may already have the ingredients you need in your pantry. That makes this an easy recipe for any mom or dad to prepare in advance for those busy weeknight dinners. Make a double batch and you'll have a baked Chicken Parmesan dinner for tonight and another one for the freezer.
