Mom's Mozzarella Chicken for Drew

Mom's Mozzarella Chicken for Drew


"Using mozzarella cheese, chicken broth, garlic and onion, this is a variation of Chicken Parmesan created for my son, who doesn't like the standard version. This dish goes fast in our home, served with hot cooked pasta, salad and crusty Italian bread."
