Chicken Parmesan

Submitted by: STAR_FLOWER

Introduction

I live in an italian family, and we used to always have chicken parmesan. I healthified it a bit, and now even my father, the picky one, says he likes this version just as much!

Ingredients

    ~4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (3 oz is a serving!!!)
    ~1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
    ~2 teaspoons mixed italian herbs to taste
    ~ 4 slices provolone cheese
    ~ 10 tablespoons low sodium Spaghetti sauce
    ~ 4 cups spaghetti noodles

Directions

~Preheat oven to 425 F
~ pound chicken breast with flat side of meat mallet until flattened out and even thickness (I didnt do this, i just bought skinnier peices of chicken...which was better because its more like a serving size)
~ Mix bread crumbs and italian herbs, put on flat dish and press both sides of chicken into crumbs
~Place chicken in baking dish, top with provolone cheese
~Bake 20 minutes (or until cheese is golden and crispy around edges.
~meanwhile put some water on for the pasta, it should be boiling by now and you can start to cook that according to directions on box
~heat your spaghetti sauce in a small sauce pan
~ The best way to keep this recipe healthy is to use low sodium spaghetti sauce, and dont go overboard...its chicken parmesan, a couple tablespoons will do ; ) Also using something like wheat noodles will make it healthier as well. I didnt have the nutrition facts for low sodium sauce and wheat noodles, so really if you do those things the nutrition facts will be even better

  • We really liked this recipe. Even my 3 picky kids loved it. I made it without the cheese to save on calories and fat, and it was still really delicious. - 9/10/08

  • This was so yummy! We made it with whole grain pasta, organic spagetti sauce and low fat cheese. It tasted just like chicken parmesan, without all the unwanted fat from frying. Will definitely make again! - 9/9/08
