Chicken Parmesan

A healthy version of comfort food, we eliminated the fried outer crust while keeping with the traditional flavors.

To cut the acidity in the tomato sauce, try adding sugar.

  • Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 8 oz Boneless Chicken Breast
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Pasta Sauce Low sodium
  • 2 oz Mozzarella Cheese Part Skim; Shredded
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Clean chicken breast of any visible fat and grizzle. Holding your knife parallel to the cutting board, slice breast in half, laterally, creating two thin chicken cutlets.

  3. Heat oil in oven proof sauté pan. Season chicken with salt and pepper.

  4. Place breast in to pan and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes.

  5. Flip chicken breasts and spread 1⁄4 cup of pasta sauce on each breast.

  6. Sprinkle 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of cheese over each sauced piece and place pan in oven until cooked through and cheese has melted, about 7 minutes.

  7. Serve next to cooked linguini garnished with additional sauce.
