Chicken Parm, but a little healthier. This chicken parm recipe was super easy to make and requires minimal ingredients. I actually decided to make this because we had a bunch of Rao's pasta sauce leftover. I thought this was a great way to reuse some leftover ingredients that we had, and to not continuously eat a bunch of pasta until we're sick of it. This was a hit and a great way to get some protein in with the chicken. Baking it also made it super easy to clean up. This meal will definitely be on repeat for my family the next time we have leftover pasta sauce!
