Our favourite go-to meal during the cooler months is Chicken Parmigiana, particularly since it makes more than we need and really good the next day heated up. Once you get yourself organized in an assembly line it comes together quite quickly. The chicken does not end up tough because it is not fully cooked before it goes into the oven.
A number of years ago Lord D gifted us with a cooking class where we learned how to prepare this dish at Natalina’s Kitchen. She went on to publish her own cookbook and now offers online classes. We have gone on to be great friends.
