Parmesan Chicken Wings | THM: S

First, my apologies for the lack of good photos for this recipe. Everyone was sitting at the table, eager to kick off Wing Night and eat these wings while they were hot, so, fast as I could, I snapped a few photos outside and they ended up being over-exposed. Oh, well. I promise the recipe is much better than the pictures. 🙂

This Parmesan Chicken Wing recipe is probably one of the easiest wing recipes you’ll ever make. Our kids especially love them because they aren’t nearly as spicy as Mommy and Daddy’s favorite: Spicy Chicken Wings on page 164 of the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook.

Bacon Cheese Topped Chicken

bacon cheese topped chickenBacon Cheese Topped Chicken is one of my favorite main dishes. It combines some of my favorite flavors (mushroom, cheddar, bacon) into one, mouth-watering package!

One of the things people miss on the THM Plan is breaded Fried chicken; while this isn’t exactly that, it’s an amazing chicken dish that just might replace it for you :).

The bacon helps keep the chicken breasts nice and tender, and two-hour marination ensures it’s full of zippy mustard flavor. Fried mushrooms and sharp cheddar add bite, and a garnish of green onions pretties it all up.
