I almost made lemon peppered chicken parmesan by accident tonight. That's what flavor the panko bread crumbs were, and they were reduced price at the grocery store. Now, I know why. Ben said he would have been very disappointed if I had made it that way, he doesn't like lemon and pepper together. A good thing, there were plain bread crumbs in the freezer. Rachel Ray suggests to keep them in the freezer for longer shelf life.
If you make this version of chicken parm, it is only 5 points per serving. They suggest 4 oz chicken breasts, that is a pretty small serving. I like to add noodles to mine or sometimes we will have it with french style green beans. This is our favorite Weight Watcher meal too. Thank you weight watchers for the awesome recipe.Print
