This week has been absolutely crazy. Teaching MDO two days and also sandwiching a dinner party in between can take it out of a girl! It's times like these when some good old fashioned Italian comfort food is just what the doctor ordered. Bring on the chicken parmesan! This dish was on the cover of Bon Appétit a couple of months ago, and the minute Matt and I both saw the recipe, we had to try it. Oh. My. Goodness. It is so good. The sauce is so simple, yet so flavorful. The inordinate amount of cheese it calls for (the obvious parmesan, PLUS mozzarella, PLUS pecorino) might seem obscene, but trust me: you'll be fighting over who gets to eat the biggest hunk of the browned cheese "crust" that develops as this bakes. Yet another knock-out recipe from our beloved Bon Appétit, and one that became an instant staple at Chez Bell.
