        It may be skimpy but it appears like it is way more than I can consume.  I may be the exception because I rarely eat all I am served.  Veal parma is one of my favorites and I like my veal or chicken fried with a crust.
         
        My favorite is Louis's on Broadway in Knoxville, TN.  I have ate there for years and have yet to ever finish the entire dinner.  As a matter of fact about half of it is all I can do.

              Probably any decent Italian restaurant in LA. From experience, there are very many excellent Italian restaurants to chose from.
              And, just for the record, veal is the only way to go.

                    My dad was a butcher & he always said that veal parm couldn't hide the fact that you were getting bad veal & was a waste of good veal (because it hid the taste of the veal itself.) Over the years I've come to agree with him. When I want veal, I'll order it francese, marsala or saltimboca.

                      This is the portion size we serve in our Cafe. We use a 4oz boneless, skinless Chicken Breast, we then us Italian seasoned bread crumbs, granulated garlic and grated Parmesan cheese for the breading. I brown the Chix breast in olive oil until nicely browned on both sides.

                      The Chicken breast is about 75% cooked at this time, I top with a good amount of shredded Mozzarella cheese. I want this to be melted and enough to cover the whole Chix Breast. I bake it to finish the cooking process of the Chix and melt the cheese to a golden brown.


                      I serve it with a side of spaghetti and garlic bread. I want my Chicken Parmesan to be loaded with melted Mozzarella cheese, a flavorful breading and a tender juicy chicken breast with a nice smooth tasty Marinara sauce.

                      There isn't any SPAM in this recipe, just a lot of TLC............PNWC

                        PMWChef:  Sure looks good to me.  Veal and chicken parma with a side of spaghettie and salad is one of my favorite meals.  I like the way you smother it with cheese.

                          Looks like a great local place Sundancer.  I love that they have a veal/eggplant parm combo.
                           
                          I think missvuster's pic is about right for my appetite that seems to have waned in recent years. 
                           
                          PNWCHEF's looks fantastic, and I'd probably get a next day lunch or two out of that size portion (if you get all 3 on the plate).  Bonus for the extra mozzarella

                            Eruby:  I have taken many of our roadfood friends there and they always enjoyed their very unusual spaghetti sauce which is very meaty and slightly salty.  The fry everything in peanut oil.
                             
                            It is one of Mamaw Smith's favorite places and mine also.  Even my grandboys enjoy it.

                            I always get the same thing:  Veal parma with extra sauce, spaghetti sauce, onion rings, salad with their home made blue cheese and thousand island and their garlic bread.  Fantastic.

                              Don't forget eggplant parmigiana as well.  There's a great little neighborhood restaurant that I go to,get the same thing almost every time, eggplant in a crisp coating of bread crumbs, topped with cheese and a small amount of sauce, with a hefty portion of spaghetti and sauce on a separate plate, which I can never finish.

                                      Skimpy or full plate.,. it all looks delicious.
                                       
                                      I don't know where I learned the method I use but it makes my coating stick well on the chicken or the eggplant.  I use mayonnaise on both before the crumb coating and very little oil in the pan.
                                       
                                      I've never been to Valentino's.  I've always heard that it's the best.  However, the Drago Brothers would differ but that's their opinion.

                                        Mar, That Mayo thing became popular in the 70's I believe. My Mom read about it in a magazine. She used to make eggplant parm that way.

                                            To me, Eggplant Parm is the last thing I would order in a Restaurant unless it was recommended by someone I know. I feel a good EP is sliced thin, breaded, fried and layered like lasagna. I have found one Restaurant, Luigi's Italian Restaurant in Spokane, Wa that makes it this way. I would rather make it myself than chance having one that doesn't fit the bill.................PNWC

                                                missvuster - you'd like it, and are welcome to join us, we'll make it a party.  You'd like the restaurant - Deano, and Louis Prima on the sound system, just about all of their entrees are served with a salad, which serve a wonderful blue cheese vinegarette dressing on.

                                                      Ann, they should put it on the Annual Roadfood Festival itinerary - or any roadfooders who come a day ahead - plan to meet for lunch (Tues-Fri) a nice streetcar ride, and you're there.
