Just A Poor Boy’s Chicken Parmesan

This is dish is fancy enough to serve at dinner parties, and it’s really cheap to gather up all the ingredients so it’s one of my favorites. You can spend that extra money buying the supplies to make a nice dinner salad and bread to complete the meal. It’s one fine way to stretch your dollar! Check out what they are saying about this recipe over at Group Recipes:

Once sauce has started to boil, lower to simmer and submerge Chicken in sauce arranging so all pieces will fit and are fully covered.
