Chicken Parmesan…Well, Sort Of.

Warmer weather, work, and holidays have made the past few weeks quite eventful (and tiring) so I apologize for the lack of posting over that time period- though it may extend over the next week or two as well. In the meantime, just bare with me and enjoy 🙂

This particular meal is somewhat reminiscent of a Chicken Parmesan type dish, with some modifications. Instead of a pasta-based side, I went with a wild rice. And as for the chicken itself…

The boneless thighs were already in the freezer and were stuffed with Mozzarella and Asparagus (prep work already done). At first I was unsure what type of way i was going to cook it so I actually started off by boiling some rice. As my mind got to thinking, I was like “hmm, I can make this in similar fashion to chicken parmesan- just stuffed.” And so I made my panko batter and threw the chicken in along with some tomato sauce and red wine and slow cooked in the oven.

I topped it off with some fresh parsely and grated some pepito cheese.

Enjoy.
