The Bidens really love chicken parmesan

The veep’s wife tweeted, “Our family loves to get together for Sunday dinners. Our favorite chicken parm #recipe is in [Rachael Ray] mag.” The Twitter post links to a recipe for “Jill Biden’s Chicken Parm.”

It’s not the first time Biden has shared how to make a belly-filling chicken parmesan. In a 2011 issue of Parade magazine, the college professor divulged the details of yet another cheese-covered chicken dish.

The recipe in Parade for “Nana Biden’s Chicken Parm” differs slightly from the one Biden shared in Rachael Ray magazine. Biden’s recipe calls for basil and cherry tomatoes, while Nana Biden’s is crafted with a premade marinara sauce.

But Jill and Nana Biden seem to both be outdone in the chicken parmesan department by another Italian cooking contender.

Joe Biden reportedly told the chef at Portabello’s in Kennett Square, Pa., that his chicken parm was the best in the United States, saying before leaving, “Don’t change your sauce! I’ll be back.”
