"Chicken parmesan is also known as chicken parmigiana or chicken parmo is a truly delicious meal and kids absolutely love it. It is particularly nice since it’s a baked chicken parmesan, not fried hence healthier which you can have it with pasta, mashed potatoes or topping portobello mushrooms for a lower-carb, protein-packed version. You will only need a few ingredients for this delicious baked chicken parmesan recipe and this will be ready in no time. This chicken parmesan can also be served on any pasta like angel hair, spaghetti, linguini or fettuccini, on mashed potatoes (I have made a delicious colcannon – the one in the picture above), over a nice herby couscous, or portobello mushrooms ( picture below) for a lower carbs option.
