This simple recipe is quick and easy… it combines chicken parmesan and eggplant parmesan.. now how can you beat that?
My recipe is also low fat… which is a nice added plus…. Baking instead of frying.. both easy and healthy.
You can make your own bread crumb mixture or use a commercial crumb mixture like Shake N Bake… I must warn you though… while Shake N Bake is easy it is loaded with sodium.
If you do use Shake N Bake… use their Parmesan flavored crumb mixture.
Use your favorite tomato sauce for this recipe…
I use non-stick foil to line my baking pan when oven “frying” the chicken and eggplant… but make sure you spray it with olive oil cooking spray.. it will add more crunch to the breading.
I also spray the tops of the chicken and eggplant just before I bake it.. to help make the top crunchy also.
Serve this with spaghetti… it’s delicious!
