Cooking with My Kid: Teaching My Kid and myself the art of cooking in 365 days

Chickenless Parmesan

If you follow the blog, you already know that my husband is a veggie; this dish was invented in honor of him. I’m not sure that I should even count it as a recipe, but my husband thinks it’s brilliant so I’m sharing it with the world. Believe it or not, this has become a household favorite even though it is made from chickenless patties.

My kid actually requests this meal and has introduced several of his friends to it. We always serve it with whole wheat pasta and some greens. It’s also great on a roll as a chickenless parmesan sub! Now for the “recipe”…

Chickenless Parmesan Recipe

Prep Time: 5 mins  Cooking Time: 20 mins

4 breaded chickenless patties
1/4 cup marinara
1/3 cup shredded part skim mozzarella

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange chickenless patties on a cookie sheet and cook patties for 15 mins. Remove patties from oven and flip them over. Add a spoonful of sauce to each patty and divide cheese evenly among the patties. Return to oven and cook for another 5 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve immediately.

PS: I read your comments to my kid every night. He loves hearing what you think of our adventures... so tell us! And check back in if you've tried out one of our recipes!
