Easy and Healthy Chicken Parmesan Recipe with Parmigiano Reggiano®

I like a good Chicken Parmesan. And since I worked at an Italian restaurant here in the USA (side note: I never heard of that dish in Europe) for a few years, I know it's one of America's favorites, too. We've always had the biggest crowd on "Chicken Parm Wednesdays".

(I was provided with a free product for my review. All opinions are my own. I would never endorse a product I don't like or believe in.

Now I work at a gym - total opposite to the restaurant. Flipping dishes and making them healthier is one of my passions. I don't like fried chicken nor using the pre-grated parmesan. What about using a grill - and a wedge of Parmigiano Reggiano! Well, not a whole wedge all at once, but we do like a LOT of Parmigiano. I freshly grate the cheese from the wedge for the most intense flavor.




I came up with a healthier version of one of our favorite dishes. My George Foreman Grill is one of my favorite kitchen gadgets, and I usually prep a bunch of chicken in it for the whole week. This is why I usually use grilled chicken. But I'll share the crock pot version as well, so check out the recipes below:

There are so many more uses and recipes for a wedge of Parmigiano Reggiano. Find them here: http://parmesan.com/recipes-with-parmesan/

Health Fact: Parmigiano is a health food and even great for kids! Because of the long aging process, Parmigiano Reggiano is naturally lactose-free and it's also easily digestible and the perfect source of both protein and calcium.
