Preparing a Fancy Chicken Parmigiana Pasta Recipe at Home! – Beyond The Plate

Are you looking for a fancy but easy-to-make dish to serve for Noche Buena? If you’re a fan of chicken and pasta, this one-pan Chicken Parmigiana recipe is just for you! 

Surprisingly, this dish is just an international variation made from an old traditional Italian recipe. It is originally made with thinly sliced, floured, and fried eggplant layered with tomato sauce and mozzarella. You might be wondering why we call it “parmigiana” when it’s usually made with mozzarella cheese. One theory suggests that it is named after the city of Parma in Northern Italy. 

In an episode of Beyond the Plate on Plus Network, celebrity chef Alyana Asistio shared how to make this 5-star quality pasta dish that’s perfect for the holiday season!
