Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan (a. k. a. Chicken Parm or Chicken Parmigiana, depending on the level of familiarity between you and this dish) is an Italian-American classic. We see it on the menu of every neighborhood Italian restaurant and many of us make it as a weeknight dinner at home. It’s so recognizable and well-loved that there are riffs on it all over the place too.
