Stovetop Chicken Parmesan Pasta

Chicken Parm is a meal that I know the kids will eat.  Breading, frying the cutlets, and then baking them can be a bit time-consuming for a weeknight meal.  I saw this recipe and thought it must be easier if it's made on the stovetop......I thought wrong.  In theory, it sounds quick and easy.  As for reality, I found this recipe took me too long to make. Not all of the chicken pieces fit in the fry pan, so I need to cook them in two batches.  And turning over small pieces of chicken to make sure all the sides got browned.....annoying!  I have to admit that this dish was tasty.....chicken parm and pasta, not much about it not to like.  However, next time I'll just fry up some cutlets, and make regular chicken parm and serve with a side of pasta.  If you have the time and like chicken parm then you'll probably like this dish!
