imageHealthy Chicken Parmesan Recipe

4 (about 8 oz each) chicken breast, fat trimmed, sliced in half to make 8

3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (I used whole wheat)

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 tbsp butter, melted (or olive oil)

3/4 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese

1 cup marinara or Filetto di Pomodoro
cooking spray

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450°. Spray a large baking sheet lightly with spray.

Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a bowl. Melt the butter in another bowl. Lightly brush the butter onto the chicken, then dip into breadcrumb mixture. Place on baking sheet and repeat with the remaining chicken. Lightly spray a little more oil on top and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Turn chicken over, bake another 5 minutes. Remove from oven, spoon 1 tbsp sauce over each piece of chicken and top each with 1 1/2 tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted
