Baked Chicken Parmesan

Submitted by: JWARD199

Introduction

Low Calorie Version of the classic recipe. Low Calorie Version of the classic recipe.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1/3 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
    1/4 cup light parmesan cheese
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (trimmed, pounded flat, and cut into large pieces)
    3 egg whites
    1 teaspoon olive oil
    4 slices provolone cheese (use light if you prefer)
    1 jar plain marinara sauce

Directions

Serve with Whole Wheat Pasta (not included in recipe).
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray a glass baking dish with cooking spray. In a wide, shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites. Using a meat tenderizer, or other heavy object, place chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound to 1/4 in thickness. Dip breasts into egg whites, then coat well with the bread crumb mixture.

Arrange chicken in the baking dish and drizzle the tops with the teaspoon of olive oil (you could lightly spray the tops with olive oil cooking spray instead if you wish to omit the oil). Bake for 20 minutes, top each chicken breast with a slice of provolone, and bake an additional 5 minutes (or until cheese has melted).

While the chicken cooks, heat the marinara in a small saucepan over medium low heat, and cook pasta according to package directions. To serve, plate the linguine topped with a large spoonful of sauce, then place the chicken breast over the pasta, and top with additional sauce.

Makes 4 Servings.
