I looked at well-known restaurant nutrition guides and noted that their chicken Parmesan dishes always seem to be high in carbohydrates and sugar. On par with ravioli and ice-cream.

How is it being prepared that is would be so high? I'm thinking plenty of added sugar to the marinara sauce?

    the carbs likely come from the breading -- flour and breadcrumbs. Sugars from the tomato sauce (for which you might be able to find a less bad version of)
