Most of these recipes were found via Pintrest. I can't help it. I'm addicted. I've tried to be sure to post the web address of each recipe to give credit where credit is due.

I have made each one of these dishes at least once. If it makes the blog, that means our family liked the dish, and someday I'll make it again.

Skinny Chicken Parmesan

Serves 4 (one chicken breast each)  225 calories

2 8oz. chicken breast, sliced in half (horizontally, or butterflied but cut all the way through)

3/4 c. seasoned breadcrumbs

1/2 t. garlic powder

1/2 t. Italian Seasonings

1/4 c. grated Paramesan cheese (or the stuff in the green bottle)

1 1/2 T. butter, melted

3/4 c. reduced fat mozzarella cheese

1 c. marinara

cooking spray

Preheat oven to 450.  Line baking sheet with foil and spray with cookin spray. 

Combine breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and Italian seasonings in a bowl.  Melt the butter and lightly brush the chicken, then dip into crumb mixture.  Place on baking sheet.

Lightly spray a little more cooking spray (this makes it nice and crispy) and bake in oven for 20 minutes.  Remove chicken from oven and turn over.  Spoon sauce over chicken and top with mozzarella cheese and bake another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
