Italian is one of my favorite types of food. You can't eat lots of pasta and breaded, deep fried food when your trying to be more healthy but this, this recipe is lightened up and still delicious! We use whole wheat bread crumbs and we bake the chicken. I also put it over whole wheat pasta to keep it more healthy! Its moist and delicious and you'll have one less thing to feel guilty about!
Baked Chicken Parmesan
2 Chicken Breasts, trimmed and pounded thin
3/4 cup Whole Wheat Breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
3/4 cup Mozzarella Cheese, grated
1 cup Marinara Sauce
Olive Oil Cooking Spray
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cover baking sheet with tinfoil and spray with cooking spray.
2. In a shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs, italian seasoning, and parmesan cheese. Brush the chicken with olive oil and place in the breadcrumb mixture, and place on the prepared baking sheet.
3. Lightly spray the tops of chicken with more cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes, turn the chicken over and bake for 5 more minutes.
4. Remove from the oven and pour sauce on the chicken and top with 1 1/2 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese. Bake for 5 more minutes to melt the cheese.
