Farm Fresh Parm

It's the time of year in West Virginia when the last of the free range chickens are processed.  My friend at the Working H Farm store tells me they butchered 200 chickens today and after September, only frozen chickens will be available.  So my chicken tonight was as fresh as fresh can be.  The recipe for this Chicken Parmesan was inspired by Cooking Light.

Saute scallion, garlic and oregano in olive oil.
