One of my neighbors had a baby and it was during the wedding planning days. So now that the wedding is over, I decided that it was time to take my neighbor a meal, and I felt that this Chicken Parmesan Freezer Meal would be perfect. It really was nice to be able to put this together so quickly.

I cooked the chicken, then I added the Marinara sauce and placed it on the bottom of the pan, (I lucked out because I just happened to have a disposable pan)!

Then I added the cheeses; after that I topped it off with the bread crumbs, butter and the spices. Then I put both the instructions for cooking it immediately and for using it as a freezer meal, on the top of the pan. 

I then took it over to my cute neighbor and I got to hold her beautiful baby boy.  He is adorable. She also has one that is about 2 years old and he wanted me to come and play toys with him. He is adorable too!

I was happy that I took them dinner because when I showed up, my friend had just asked her mom what they were going to eat for dinner? So, like I said, you can put it in the freezer and use it later or you can make it and use it now.
