Our Chicken Parmesan Recipe with Zucchini and Mushrooms recipe is a delicious dinner you can have ready in less than 30 minutes for your family!
I love to cook and I especailly love to cook for those I love! Recently Bertolli and Ahold stores gave me the opportunity to create a feast for those I love! I was asked to throw a party. I wanted to surprise my in-laws and hubby’s siblings with a huge meal! Everyone works so hard all day and I just wanted everyone to come to the house for a home cooked meal, without them standing over a hot stove right after coming home. My mother in law comes home around 3pm so my husband and I (with Kay!) got to my in-laws house at 12:30 and I started to cook at 12:45 after we brought all the bags in and organized what we needed.
I was so excited to surprise her. Typically we visit each Tuesday since it’s my husband’s day off and while we’d usually go out to eat. I wanted to make a delicious Italian meal. A meal just like my grandma and mother used to make. My father’s side is Italian and my mother’s side is Polish/Russian. Between both sides we love to cook and eat too!
My mother was well known for her eggplant parmesan. I love eggplant parm, however some of the kiddos aren’t a huge fan. I wanted to create something like my mother would make for them, so I made Chicken Parmesan Recipe with Zucchini and Mushrooms ! I used Bertolli Pasta Sauce as well as their Olive oil for most of the recipes!
Now until November 5th, you can save on Bertolli pasta sauces at Ahold stores including Stop & Shop, Giant and Martin’s. Find Bertolli in the pasta sauce aisle and on display in the meat department.
Chris quickly went into sous chef mode and I am so thankful for this day we had in the kitchen. It’s so special to cook for those you love, especially with the one you love. As I was prepping the chicken, he was chopping all the zucchini, mushrooms and veggies for the salad.
My father in law stopped in while we were cooking as he usually comes home for a quick lunch. He snacked a bit on the veggies and kept our secret until everyone arrived. 🙂
The house smelled delicious and as soon as my mother in law pulled up my husband rushed out the door – she could smell the food from outside! I had finished about 10 minutes prior to her arriving and everything was in the oven keeping warm/cooking. She was in total shock when I showed her what was cooking – she couldn’t believe it. I made sure to clean up everything as I went. Here kitchen smelled like a kitchen right out of Tuscany and I couldn’t wait to share my Italian recipes with them!
The kids had a blast eating all the yummy food too! 🙂
We purchased all the ingredients from my in laws local Stop and Shop Supermarket. You can find great deals on Bertolli products there! 🙂
