Whenever I go to an Italian restaurant I feel inclined to order Chicken Parmesan. I use that to decide if the place is good or not. I take a lot of things into account; is the chicken dry or moist? is the breading right or wrong? is the pasta cooked right? But most importantly the sauce is what makes it what it is.

Rauge Homestyle

When I make Chicken Parmesan at home I want it to be perfect so I go for a sauce that I know I love. When Ragu came out with their Homestyle line I found that perfection. I prefer the Homestyle Thick and Hearty Traditional Sauce and add just a little Italian Sausage to it.

The sauce is already amazingly delicious since they peel, chop and simmer the ingredients and use a special blend of herbs (basil, fennel, oregano and black pepper) to layer and build the flavor.

I also use fresh cheese (mozzarella and parmesan) in place of the processed stuff – it’s so much better this way! I top the Panko breaded chicken with some mozzarella (after the chicken is mostly cooked) and bake it then I add the sauce and bake it just a little longer.

Perfection!
