Chicken Parm with Spaghetti and Garlic Bread

Mmmmmm… who doesn’t like a home-cooked classlic like chicken parm?! I can tell you that it is one of my favorite dishes.

Chicken Parm with Spaghetti and Garlic Bread

Chicken Parm has been around since 20th century Italy. Its popularity grew in the States and, surprisingly, Australia, and is now a staple at many italian restaurants and in many peoples’ homes today.

Consisting of only 4 true ingredients- chicken, pasta, sauce, and parmesean cheese- chicken parm is one of the easiest dishes to make at home- even if you are a cooking novice! While most chicken breast is served breaded and fried in oil, I chose to make mine unbreaded, cooked in oil and then baked to allow fresh mozzarella to melt onto the chicken. Check out the ingredient list and cooking directions below for flawless, unbreaded chicken parm!

We are giving this rendition of chicken parm 4 stars! We would have given it 5, except for the fact that, as always, I overocoked the chicken by a mear 30 seconds. It came out of the oven just a tad too dry, but still tasted delicious!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Story Time with Jenn- Goodnight Moon

Happy Monday!

Thank you for coming back for week two of Story Time with Jenn! It means you must have enjoyed last weeks! It was really fun reading The Cat in the Hat to you all… and to Emily, of course! I haven’t read childrens’ books, probably since I was a child. Actually, the last childrens’ book I read was Wacky Wednesday, which is my personal favorite Dr. Seuss book. We will be reading that one in just a few weeks!

I am excited for this week! We are going to be reading a book that I have actually never read before. It is a staple of many peoples’ childhoods, including my fiancè Connors’. I thought this book would be a great way to ease back into week two of our vlog.

Today, we will be reading Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown. If you have your own copy, grab it and find a comfy spot on your couch or floor and read along!
