Bisquick really does make things better sometimes. It's that magical baking mix that comes out perfectly and can transform from biscuits to dinner fare in no time flat. It's also very tasty as a coating, which is why this Chicken Parmesan recipe is so incredibly delicious.
The flavors of traditional Italian chicken Parmesan are still there, but the bisquick enrobes the chicken perfectly to accept the seasonings and sauce without falling apart or turning to goo.
This is great food made easy with just one ingredient change. Versatile Biquick is a gem. Besides, who can hate on Betty Crocker? Not us. Especially after we ate this!
