Chicken Parmesan - Aaron Mccargo, Jr's Masterpiece!

This is, without question, the best chicken parmesan I've ever had. It's from Aaron McCargo, Jr of The Next Food Network Star competition. I love the way he seasons the chicken itself as well as the panko, making sure you *get* the seasonings instead of them falling off into the oil. The white sauce takes this completely over the top. Just when you think you've died and gone to blissful heaven, another dimension of magnificent flavor graces your awaiting tongue. Use your favorite store-bought marinara. I used Classico Cabernet Marinara with Herbs and it was DEEE-vine! I also used far less oil than Aaron's suggested 2 quarts and halved the recipe which turned out just fine. Diet, SCHMY-ET!
