5 Ingredient Chicken Parmesan

Save for later!

This 5 Ingredient Chicken Parmesan is one of our family’s favorite recipes and certainly one of the easiest to make! The kids call it “Pizza Chicken” because it really does taste like pizza. It’s my go-to recipe when I’m pressed for time (it only takes 5 minutes to prepare), but delicious enough to serve company.

    • Dreamfields pasta is theoretically low carb, and on-plan as a personal choice item, so with that it’s still an S. I’m guessing that the suggestion to have it over pasta, rice or quinoa is for her non-THMing readers.

  1. Looks delish, and is on the menu tomorrow night! Would you guess this is about 2lbs of chicken breasts? Thanks for sharing!

  2. Apparently you can’t put the chicken in there raw unless you wanna wait 200 hours for it to cook. You guys might wanna day to cook the chicken beforehand, just saying
