Skinny chicken parmesan

Review by Lyndee:

4 (8 oz) chicken breast halves, sliced in half to make 8
3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp butter, melted (I used olive oil)
3/4 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese
1 cup marinara or spaghetti sauce
cooking spray

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.

Serve with spaghetti, spaghetti squash or tofu noodles.  I used Shirataki tofu noodles.  One bag is only 40 calories, 1 g of fat and 6 carbs versus the terrible stats of real pasta.  I halved the recipe and just made two chicken breasts.  I couldn’t even finish half because it was filling.  And so delicious!
