Chicken Parmesan is one of the best Italian dishes ever. Since it is usually fried and smothered in cheese, I decided to lighten it up by creating Easy Chicken Parm Meatloaf Muffins. I make a homemade chicken meatloaf mixture with Italian-inspired ingredients and shape them in a muffin tin. Bake the meatloaves until cooked through before topping with marinara sauce and some reduced-fat mozzarella. Fresh basil at the end adds a ton of freshness and flavor that is so reminiscent of Italian cooking. Try my Easy Chicken Parm Meatloaf Muffins, the best new way to eat chicken Parm!
