Easy Parmesan Garlic Chicken

If you know me at all, you know that I did not get the cooking gene, but my sister did. That is why I leave all the “Top Chef” cooking to her while I only tackle simple and easy. I saw this Garlic Parmesan Chicken recipe from Classy Clutter on Pinterest and it peaked my “hard to peak” cooking interest. The recipe seemed simple enough and it looks pretty yummy. I must say, it was easy and delicious.

Everyone in my family loved this chicken, although my youngest thought it was a little “spicy,” probably from the Italian dressing mix. I made my favorite Tomato, Cucumber and Garbonzo Bean Salad¬†as a side. It was delish! Enjoy!!
