Having lived in Southern California for the last seven years, I had forgot both how beautiful a snow storm can be, but also its ability to completely trap you at home. I volunteered to cook dinner tonight and was planning to go and buy some beautiful New England seafood for delicious seafood stew but instead found myself stuck inside needing to create something to feed the army of folks in our house. That’s where the idea for this simple chicken Parmesan came from, which I baked instead of fried to lighten it up. Anytime I bread anything, I always mix in my own spices to the bread crumbs to add flavor, usually inspired by the type of food I am cooking. For this meal I added Italian spices and some salty, delicious Parmesan cheese. I had my chicken parm with a large green salad but most people had theirs with pasta. If you have a high fiber or whole wheat pasta around, you could have this with a half a cup and it would still only be a 7.5 point meal.
