Why do I love this recipe? Because it just goes to show ya that you don't have to give up the old foods you love in order to live a healthy life. We just need to give our old dishes a new look! Simple changes made this Chicken Parmesan into a lean meal that we love WAY more than the version my family has seen in restaurants and on take-out menus. I won't ever think of Chicken Parmesan the same way again. From now on, this is the only way to make it.

The big savings came from reducing the amount of olive oil and butter; in both the main recipe AND in Giada's recipe for a Simple Tomato Sauce. Using your favorite jarred or canned sauce saves time, money, calories and fat. I can't speak for you, but cutting down on all those things sounds pretty amazing to me! I hope you love this dish as much as we did.
Thanks for stoppin' by!
