Primed Chicken Parmagiana with Zucchini Noodles

Chicken Parmagiana is an Australian favorite. We used to love ours with fries when we were younger. Vegetable oil soaked fries are potentially deadly so we avoid those, but our whole family still loves chicken topped with home-made tomato, onion & garlic sauce with grilled cheese. What’s not to love about that?
