"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born - it's an idea, a state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, high school football, country music, and acoustic guitars. It's being hospitable, being devoted to front porches, magnolias, the good Lord, and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way."


3 Cheese Chicken Parmesan

I know, I know, I haven't posted here in FOREVER.  Thank you so much for coming back!

A couple of months ago Hunter, my honey-bunny, told me his favorite dish is chicken parmesan.
I had actually never made chicken parm, but I figured, how hard can it be?
I googled and found a couple of recipes, and then created my own, loosely based on what I found.
It was a success, to put it mildly!  Hunter LOVED it, and all of our kids loved it - even his super-picky son, and my youngest, Elayna, who doesn't like spaghetti, lasagna, or many things with tomato sauce.

So, I figured I'd share the recipe with you, my amigos.
Oh - and I don't really measure, so bear with me, I'll estimate when I can.  Sorry!

3 Cheese Chicken Parmesan

6 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
6 slices of provolone cheese
2 cups of mozzarella cheese
1 cup of parmesan cheese
1 cup bread crumbs
olive oil
tomato sauce (I used jarred sauce, and doctor it up with spices and minced garlic)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Next, pour your breadcrumbs into a large bowl and add about 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese.  Add your favorite italian spices.  Dip the chicken breasts into the mixture.  Then, brown them in a little olive oil.  No need to fully cook them, you're just giving them a crunchy bread coating.

Heat up your tomato sauce, and add 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese.  
Place your browned chicken breasts into a 9x13 baking pan.
Put one slice of provolone over each chicken breast.
Pour tomato sauce mixture over the chicken, and in the pan around it.  
Cover the entire concoction with mozzarella cheese.  
Bake for approximately 35-45 minutes, depending on the thickness of your breasts.
Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese.

I like to make spinach as a side dish and mix it with the excess tomato sauce while I'm eating it.
Oh.My.God.  Delicious!!!

Everyone who I have made this for now LOVES it.

Hunter really loves and appreciates my cooking, and I love cooking for him, so I'm hoping to get this blog going again.

Next up will be my cheesy spinach stuffed chicken recipe!


  1. I've been meaning to come check this out since I saw it on your blogger profile. Guess who's favorite dish is also Chicken Parm and guess what I was going to make for dinner tonight because he is going to watch my kids while I go to yoga! Maybe I'll remember to take photos and blog about it!

  2. This sounds sooooooooooo good. I love cheese!!!
