Healthy Chicken Parm Recipe

Healthy Chicken Parmesan

Makes 4 servings

4 skinless boneless thin cut chicken breasts

olive oil spray

1 egg

1 tbsp low-fat milk

3/4 c seasoned bread crumbs (or make your own with old stale bread in the food processor and season with salt and pepper. You can also use whole wheat bread crumbs or gluten free)

2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

3/4 c tomato sauce

4 thin slices fresh mozzarella

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray glass baking dish with olive oil spray. Clean chicken breasts and pat dry. Whisk egg and milk in medium bowl. Mix bread crumbs and 2 tbsp parmesan cheese. Dip each chicken breast in egg mixture. Transfer chicken to bread crumb mixture and coat well. Shake off excess bread crumbs. Place chicken breasts in glass baking dish so they are close, but not on top of one another. Bake about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and divide tomato sauce evenly over each piece. Layer mozzarella on top of sauce and bake about 5 more minutes until chicken is cooked through and mozzarella is melted.  (For browner colored chicken, broil about 2 - 3 minutes on high).

Serve over pasta or zoodles if desired.
