Chicken Parmesan

I love this chicken parmesan recipe! It is so delicious and quite simple to make. Plus, it is from Cooking Light, so it is good for you! (Or at least better for you!)

You can dress it up by making your own spaghetti sauce or you can make it easier and use storebought. I have done it both ways and either way is yummy!


Cooking Light Chicken Parmesan

4 (4 oz) chicken breast halves

1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs

1/4 cup grated Parmesan

1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

1/8 tsp black pepper

1/3 cup all purpose flour

2 large egg whites, lightly beaten

2 tsp olive oil

4 cups hot cooked spaghetti (about 8 oz uncooked)

3 cups marinara sauce

1 cup mozzarella

Flatten chicken to 1/4" thickness.

Combine breadcrumbs through pepper. Dredge chicken in flour, then egg whites, then breadcrumb mixture.

Heat oil in skillet. Add chicken and cook 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through.

Preheat broiler.

Place 1 cup spaghetti in each serving dish. Top with 1/2 cup sauce and then chicken. Spoon 1/4 cup sauce on top of chicken and sprinkle with 1/4 cup mozzarella.

Place in broiler until cheese is melted.
