So tonight I made Rob’s favorite dinner – chicken cutlet parmigiana. He had never had it growing up and little did he know the Italian deliciousness he’d experience after meeting me!!! I grew up in an Italian family and we made lots of traditional Italian feasts!!
When we were dating the first time Rob came to my house for dinner I made lasagna and meatballs. He wasn’t used to this kind of Italian food. His idea of lasagna was taking the pre-made lasagna out of the Stouffer’s box and heating it up!! But, as I started preparing more and more of the Italian food I grew up on, he became quite spoiled! No more Stouffer’s for Rob!!! It’s funny because he doesn’t even like it anymore. He keeps saying I’ve spoiled him – and you know what… I’m okay with that! 🙂
So, at one point I had made chicken cutlet parmigiana and he went crazy over it. After that every time I asked him what he wanted for dinner it was always the same answer “chicken cutlet parmigiana.” It quickly became his favorite meal. I made a bunch of chicken cutlets yesterday to get ready for the holidays. I kept a few out of the freezer and made Rob’s favorite tonight!
I hope you’ll enjoy this Italian classic as well!
Chicken Cutlet Parmigiana
1) Place chicken cutlets on a cookie sheet. Top evenly with the mozzarella cheese and put some tomato sauce on each chicken cutlet.
2) Bake at 350 degrees for about 6-8 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
