Kids in the Kitchen: Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan

ChickenParm2Today I am sharing a simple dinner recipe that my family loves.  This recipe is awesome because it is quick, easy and delicious!!  It is also an excellent recipe to use to get kids involved in dinner making.   Currently, this is my son Daniel’s favorite thing to make (pretty much on his own now) for dinner.  We originally found the recipe in his go-to cookbook, Cooking for Kids Bible.
