This Chicken Parm recipe is a great way to turn a family favorite into a healthier meal! Add it to your meal plan next week! I'm all about making easy stuff that your husband and kid will eat too. 😉 (Well, hopefully your kid. Mine still lives on crackers and chicken nuggets, but we're working on it. 🙄)
