Parmesan Chicken 

I love all italian cheeses especially parmesan and fresh mozzarella cheese.  Sometimes I just slice them and have it as a snack. Regarding storing them I do not know how to keep the mozzarella cheese fresh longer so, usually get in smaller quantity but in case of Parmesan cheese I get a large wedge.  I wrap it in foil tightly and store it in freezer. Defrost it and have Parmesan cheese every time when I need. This way you can store parmesan cheese for longer time without spoiling them. 

About this dish there is nothing more to talk about, the look of the dish speaks for itself.
