Padella il Pollo Alla Parmigiana

 Padella il Pollo Alla Parmigiana = Skillet Chicken Parm. (in Italian) = Super Deliciousness (delizioso!)

 

I have been studying up on some Italian, trying to get back to my roots. My grandmother is from Italy and of course, speaks fluent Italian. Unfortunately, I do not get to spend too much time with her, and my dad never picked up on the language so he can't teach me either. Thank goodness for Google translate! They also have a Listen feature so I can hear how its pronounced. I want to start learning a word a day and a complete phrase per week!!

With that said, my phrase this week is Padella il Polla Alla Parmigiana! My husband is a huge fan of chicken parm, and I always feel like its a lot of steps for one meal, and honestly, it could be a little healthier! So, I decided to make a one skillet, semi healthier version. It is quick, painless and delicious. (E 'veloce, indolore e delizioso!)

I start off with heating some olive oil in a skillet (you will need a skillet that has a top). After the oil is heated, add 1 small chopped onion, and a handful of sliced mushrooms. Saute these for a couple of minutes, and then add a glove (or 2) of garlic. Then add in a couple of chicken breasts and cook until they form a nice crust on one side. Right after you turn them, add in about 3/4 of a jar of sauce, and cover to simmer. The chicken breasts will finish cooking by almost steaming in the sauce. After about 15 minutes (depending on the size of your chicken breasts) you can remove the top and add a little bit of shredded Mozzarella cheese! Cover and cook for another 2 minutes, until the cheese has melted. Serve over some multi grain or whole wheat pasta!
