Mama, Let’s Cook! Episode 2: Chicky Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan served in a cast iron skillet

We are thrilled to be back with our second episode of our plucky, homespun cooking show, Mama, Let’s Cook!  This week, Percy and I gift you with a Friday night family dinner of healthy Chicky Parmesan, a quick and simple arugula salad, and last-but-not-least, Percy’s take on Cacio e Pepe (aka. Butter noodles!) As you will see in the Mama, Let’s Cook! video and accompanying recipe below, the dinner is kid-frendly and quick to prepare, healthy and a crowd-pleaser. We would love your suggestions for what you would like us to cook next!

Chicken Parmesan

Course Main Course
Keyword chicken


  • 2 Chicken Breasts Cut in half crosswise
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil + more for drizzling
  • 1 tsp Fresh Rosemary leaves chopped
  • 1 tsp Fresh Thyme leaves chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups Marinara
  • 8 oz Buttercup or mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Sea Salt
  • Freshly ground Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. (Optional but recommended) Put the chicken breasts between two pieces of parchment or wax paper and flatten with rolling pin to a uniform thickness of 1/3-3/4 inch.

  3. Drizzle chicken breasts with olive oil, salt, pepper, and fresh rosemary and thyme.

  4. In a large cast-iron or skillet of your choosing (I used my Le Creuset large, deep frying pan), heat 2-3 tbps of olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until slightly golden, about 5 minutes on each side.

  5. Remove from heat, drain excess liquid and pour the marinara sauce over the chicken. Scatter your two cheeses on top and bake until bubbling, either in the oven or on the stovetop, around 15 minutes.

  6. Cook a pasta of your choice in salted water, al dente. Serve chicken with pasta and a side of brocolli.

Bread and Honey's Blessing of the Week

May our lives reflect the Truth:

Hope is real

Healing is possible

Life is a privilege

We exist for a purpose

Grace is available

Love prevails

God has us.



The Day You BeginI am a huge admirer of Jacqueline Woodson, the author of The Day You Begin, Brown Girl Dreaming, and my all-time favorite, Locomotion. Jacqueline Woodson was named the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature in 2018. She coined the equation: Reading = Hope x Change.” We find hope in what we read,” she said. “And that reading and hope changes us.” Our kids are these beautiful, blank, hopeful slates, let’s etch on their hearts what it really means to love our neighbor. Parnassus has an incredible selection of children and young adult literature by black authors that are committed to writing a new story of hope for all of us.

    I figured out more new things on this weight-loss issue. One particular issue is a good nutrition is especially vital if dieting. A big reduction in fast foods, sugary foodstuff, fried foods, sugary foods, red meat, and bright flour products can be necessary. Retaining wastes harmful bacteria, and toxic compounds may prevent objectives for losing belly fat. While particular drugs quickly solve the problem, the nasty side effects will not be worth it, plus they never present more than a momentary solution. This can be a known idea that 95 of dietary fads fail. Thanks for sharing your ideas on this weblog.

Through everything the industry has really proven to be sturdy, resilient in addition to dynamic, discovering new solutions to deal with hardship. There are usually fresh challenges and the opportunity to which the industry must once more adapt and act in response.
