  1. What dish would you serve with this? Rice or potatoes? Also, what vegetable do you serve with this? Thanks!!

  2. This looks amazing and I want to make it. I’m wondering what type of pasta you recommend with this? Thank you!

  3. You can use whatever pasta you like. We usually serve with angel hair. It really is an easy delicious way to enjoy Chicken Parmesan.

  4. You honestly can serve this dish with whatever you want. I prefer pasta since it is Italian. I probably would do broccoli or a green vegetable and a salad. Asparagus are in season now.
