Chicken Parma vegetables and bread roll

I managed to get chicken cutlets and bread rolls today. So, I decided to make a simple chicken parmigiana with white sauce and leftover mushrooms tomatoes and cucumber. I am also rationing my ingredients.

Trying two ways methods. The first method is fry in oil and the second method is bake. Well, I am happy that it’s looks golden brown and crispy. Added white sauce so that its not too dry and using up leftovers mushrooms gives it a lovely texture to the sauce. Let’s cook and bake this delicious meal and serve with a glass of white wine.
