Megans Cookin: Parmesan Chicken

Parmesan Chicken



It's time for the Barefoot Bloggers and this weeks recipe was chose by Megan of My Baking Adventure.
This is a great recipe using ingredients I know I always have on hand. In fact it's so easy, I only had to read the recipe once. The only changes I made were using egg substitute instead of whole eggs. I didn't serve it with the salad so I didn't make the vinaigrette. I served mine with fresh roasted potatoes from the farmers market.




I recommend you check out the other Barefoot Bloggers and their website. Maybe it will encourage you to become a Barefoot Blogger!!!
