Baked Chicken Parmesan is a lighter version of the classic. To lighten this dish up, bake the chicken parmesan in the oven instead of deep-frying it.
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, split in half
- 3/4 cup of panko bread
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons of freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon of Italian Seasoning
- 4 tablespoons of Marinara Sauce (store bought)
- Basil for garnish
- 4 Fresh Mozzarella Slices
- Preheat Oven to 450.
- Split each chicken breast in half. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. In a shallow dish combine the bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, and parmesan cheese.
- Crack an egg into another shallow dish and whisk it to combine. Dip the chicken into the eggs and then into the bread crumb mixture and lay on a sheet pan with a cooling rack.
- Repeat this process 4 times.
- Spray the chicken with cooking spray, and cook the chicken at 450 for 20 minutes. Spoon 1 tablespoon of marinara sauce on each piece of chicken and some cheese and place the chicken back into the pan until the cheese is melted. Garnish with freshly chopped basil.
- Serving size: 1 chicken breast + 2 tablespoons of marinara sauce.
