Tips For Making Stuffed Chicken Parmesan

  • My family likes as little spinach as possible but you can add as much as you like
  • Be sure your chicken breast has been flattened to 1/4″ thick or less.  If it’s thicker than this, the chicken will take longer to cook and can dry out the chicken and it won’t taste as good.
