Chef ElizabethFall is in full swing on the farm, and most of the vegetables and fruits have been harvested. The very last of the peppers — the hot variety — were picked just in time, before the frost hit. In fact we had 6 inches of snowfall just a few days ago. It was a gorgeous sight, and I made sure to get my camera.

When the winter turns cold and the days are shorter, I turn to comfort food. It warms the kitchen and is so satisfying.

I am sharing with you one of my favourite comfort foods: Classic Chicken Parmesan. This is a very popular dish, and you can find it in many restaurants across the country. But nothing tastes quite like homemade. The recipe may seem complicated if you are not familiar with the three-step breading process; once you have your three dishes set up and seasoned, the hardest part is done.

Feel free to use your own tomato sauce or your favourite store-bought brand. You can add some fresh herbs to the store-bought to add flavour.

Chicken Parmesan is a perfect dish for entertaining, especially on chilly evenings, and it can be made ahead of time. I like to serve it with a side of pasta, garlic bread and sometimes a garden side salad. If you have leftover it makes a great sandwich the next day.
