Chicken Parmesan vs Zucchini Parmesan

One of my husband’s favorite dishes, of all time, is chicken parmesan. I still remember when he told me that, and I made the meal for him for the first time. I am happy to report that he loved my chicken parmesan, and the more comfortable I’ve gotten over the years with cooking, the better…
