A lighter take on chicken parm
Through extensive research (and by “research,” we mean eating), we’ve found that certain comfort foods are equally as delicious baked as they are fried. (Fish and chips or green-bean "fries", anyone?) So we thought why not change up chicken parmigiana next? Our version of the Italian classic starts with thin chicken breasts, which we stuff with a cheese-and-spinach filling, roll up into bundles and coat lightly with bread crumbs. Then we bake the chicken--along with homemade tomato sauce and, of course, more cheese--for about 30 minutes. In the name of said research, we’re prepared to have seconds.

Add some sides: Serve the chicken along with a salad, garlic "nots" or pasta.
