Recipe: Lisa Lillien's Super Cheesy Chicken Parmesan

Kitchen experts share some of their favorite skillet recipes.

Lisa Lillien sends out daily e-mails with weight loss ideas and recipes from hungry-girl.com. She's author of "Hungry Girl Recipes and Survival Strategies" (St. Martin's).

"You CAN cook chicken Parmesan that's healthy. With a high-fiber crust and low-fat cheese, mine is guilt-free. I serve it straight from the pan for my husband and me, but it's also great for a group."
