Whisking Mama’s Baked Chicken Parmesan

Whisking Mama's Baked Chicken ParmesanWith a million ways to make baked chicken parmesan today I’m sharing my own personal favorite

This must be a dream…blogging about food that is! As I sit here typing this and my two babies are upstairs sleeping, I feel blessed. Blessed that they are sleeping together for a whole twenty minutes and blessed that I have found time for something I’m so passionate and in love with doing. Sometimes life gets frustrating and your toddler is sick, there is girlfriend drama and you struggle keeping up with life’s daily tasks, appointments and chores, but you just have to stop yourself and say what am I grateful for. Well, I have a lot to be thankful for including my friends who always are there for me, family who I know loves me unconditionally, all three of my adorable babies and my passion for blogging about food and life. Amen! Just take a moment for yourself, put aside everything you would change about your life and think of all you have that is good. I bet you can think of at least three! 🙂

I prefer my Baked chicken Parmesan simple, light and flavorful. This recipe originates from Whisking Mama’s Favorite Baked Chicken recipe that is so tasty and healthy. I added to it a little of this and a little of that for my perfected version of Baked Chicken Parmesan. No need to over load the linguine with sauce, I simply add a little butter and salt to my pasta. Top the linguine with the baked chicken and a sprinkle fresh chopped parsley for the finishing touch. In the end you can really taste all the different flavors that pair beautifully in this dish.
