While I was eating the chicken Parmesan I was thinking, “Why don’t we eat this more often? It is so good!”
John split the breasts in half longitudinally so that we each had two thinner pieces. He sautéed them in a little olive oil and then finished the breasts in the oven with a bit of the sauce, a sprinkling of shredded mozzarella, and a dusting of Parmesan cheese. In the meantime I cooked the spaghetti and combined it with some sauce and a little pasta water and also sautéed the asparagus with onions and garlic. Apart from a lunch-sized portion of spaghetti there were no leftovers tonight!
Maybe the reason we do not make this too often is that the clean-up is onerous. There was a large skillet for the chicken, a small skillet for the asparagus, a large pot for the pasta, and a smaller one for the sauce. It is a good and wondrous thing that John likes to do the dishes!!
