Baked Chicken Parmesan
Here is another great recipe from Gina's WW blog. This tasted sooooooooooooo good...you won't believe it's also low-fat!
It's a perfect weeknight meal b/c it cooks quickly and does not require a lot of prep. I served it with a simple salad for my DH and I. For the kids, I added a side of veggies.
Makes 8 servings
4 (8 oz) chicken breast halves, sliced in half
3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp butter, melted
3/4 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese (I used Sargento)
1 cup marinara or Filetto di Pomodoro
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 cooking oil on top and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Turn chicken over, bake another 5 minutes. Remove from oven, spoon sauce over chicken and top with shredded cheese. Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
