Tasty Thursday

I've decided that I'm going to start posting healthy recipes on Thursdays, in honor of my commitment to make a full lifestyle change (you can read about my journey to health in my new blog Chronicles of a Fat Girl). I want to make it my mission for myself, my family, and you, my readers, to find healthier alternatives to our favorite fatty dishes. For my first recipe, I'm bringing you Baked Chicken Parmesan. If you're like me, you LOVE the traditional chicken parm. Let's make it a little healthier while still keeping the taste!

  • 4 (8 oz) chicken breast halves, sliced in half
  • 3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (I used 4C whole wheat)
  • 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
  • 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 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.
