Easy Chicken Parmesan Recipe – Ready In 15 Minutes

I don’t know about you, but some night I need a quick and easy dinner idea.  One that can be made quickly that we all enjoy is a plus too ๐Ÿ˜‰  That’s exactly why I love this version of Chicken Parmesan!


You only need a few ingredients, and you may have them in your pantry!  As you can see, I have croutons pictured up there…in this recipe I don’t bread the chicken like you usually see, so if you like some added crunch – the croutons are perfect.

I actually needed to run to the store to grab the Del Monte Diced Tomatoes and Sauce.  I rode my bike (yes, rode my bike – I figured I met as well get some exercise in too!) up to Winn-Dixie and got what I needed.  You can easily make this meal for less than $10 and feed a family of four.

I love that the seasonings are already in the tomatoes…saves me a couple extra steps.  And I am all about saving time!  Plus, since two of the main ingredients are cans, you can grab a few extra when you are at the store and not have to worry about them going bad.  You are going to want to make this one again soon…so grab 2 of each ๐Ÿ˜‰

I love that we make this whole recipe in just one pan, that means no extra pans to clean ๐Ÿ™‚

I only used a 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese in the recipe, I didn’t see the need to cover it with lots of cheese and extra calories when the flavor is fantastic without it.

  1. I absolutely love chicken parm and I have never cooked it at home. But this is a very easy recipe that I know I could do. I love the its simple and fast way to get dinner. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks so much for the Delicious Recipe on Easy Chicken Parmesan Recipe โ€“ Ready In 15 Minutes! I love Chicken Parmesan, however, my husband does not eat chicken! He eats turkey, however, wants nothing to do with chicken! The kids and I love chicken. When we weren’t so bad off, financial wise, we’d occasionally go out to dinner. The kids and I would most always get chicken because I can’t make it at home, unless there is something else for the “hubby” to eat! We’d go to this place called The Collegeville Diner and they serve such big portions and so much food that you end up bringing a lot of it home! Yippee leftovers for the next day! However, we haven’t been out to eat in quite a long while now. I loved to get their Chicken Parm.! It would come out 2 huge patties with sauce and cheese and was absolutely delicious! I’d end up brining at least the 2nd one home with me! I think hubby feels bad that our situation is because of his 2 surgeries and not working, and even though it is because of that fact, he can’t help that he had problems. So, we’ve been trading off making dinners at night! I think tomorrow is my night! HRmmmm should I make chicken??? No, I’ll be good! Your chicken parm. recipe looks so good and you’ve made me hungry for it now!!! Thanks so much for sharing your delicious recipe on Easy Chicken Parmesan Recipe โ€“ Ready In 15 Minutes with all of us! You know that I honestly do appreciate it! Thanks again! Michele ๐Ÿ™‚
