Chicken ParmesanSubmitted by: STAR_FLOWER
IntroductionI 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! 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!
~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
~ 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
Number of Servings: 4
