I debated about whether or not to post these recipes on my blog because I don't want to turn it into a "Healthy Food Blog". And I have no intentions of doing that. But when I thought about why I started this blog in the first place, I realized that yes, I want to share the recipes that I love with others, but first and foremost I started this blog as a way to keep track of all the recipes I love and want to use again. I refer to my blog all the time when I meal plan and cook so in order for this blog to continue to serve me I decided to post the recipes I love because even if they are lower in calories and fat they are still delicious!

This recipe comes from www.weightwatchers.com. It is the best chicken parmesan I have ever had. I've never been a huge fan of chicken parm as I've always found it to be too rich. This was so fresh tasting and so delicious. I served mine with long grain and wild rice and mixed vegetables. So yummy!
