We don't go out for Italian food very often, but when we do, I almost always get chicken parmesan. Just as an aside, I've seen it as both “parmesan” and “parmigiana”. I have no idea whether one is correct. It's like the whole donut/doughnut issue. Anyway, I love the combination of crispy chicken, sauce, and noodles.
However, I don't love the idea of frying my own chicken at home. This One Skillet Chicken Parmesan is an easy, short-cut way to get that combination. It's made entirely in one (large) skillet, and it only takes about 35 minutes to make. So, you can easily enjoy a quick weeknight meal of chicken parm without all of the work (and mess)
