I followed the recipe pretty closely. It turned out decent, although not as cheesy normally as baked ziti is. I opted to mix in the marinara sauce with the pasta instead of having it layered on. Next time I would try to do the same thing with the layer of Parmesan cheese so it’s more cheesy within, instead of having it sit as one layer below the chicken. Then probably add a little more sauce on top of the chicken. But still pretty good for a “healthier” night in.
Hi! I know it’s been a long while since I posted last but here’s something I made tonight that deserved a post for me to remember what I did. This is not healthy by any means but totally delicious. Thanks Bobby Flay and my aunt for the pepperjack idea. This is the altered recipe for Chicken Parmesan (with Pepperjack Cheese instead):
My chicky chicky parm parm (any Parks&Rec fans out there?!) was not as crispy as I’d normally get at restaurants but that’s probably due to the lack of oil I tried putting.. I’m sure if I actually used a lot more oil in the frying pan, it would be crispier. Still was faaaaantasic.
