baked chicken parm – townie

i had taken out 2 packages of chicken yesterday then remembered that we didnt need leftovers – so i only used one package – leaving me with a package of chicken i HAD to use today!    this chicken was YUMMY  the kiddos gobbled it up and left one small piece for the husband… the kids ate it with a side of peas – the husband had some leftover pizza alongside his chicken 🙂  i’ll definitely make it again but use double the chicken!
