Recipe: Baked Chicken Parmesan

Recipe: Baked Chicken Parmesan

Toward the end of the summer, I bought a membership to The Barre Code. I decided I wanted to get into a routine of working out on a regular basis and Barre Code offers multiple types of classes, from cardio to barre, so it was the perfect fit. Most weekdays I go to the 7:00am (!!!!) class and it's actually been very motivational getting up so early to workout.

In addition to working out, I have also been making healthy meals at home on a regular basis. I know I have said this before, but Skinnytaste is my favorite site for healthy meals! Gina does an amazing job in providing recipes for your favorite meals, presented in a healthy way. Last night I made baked chicken Parmesan and it was so easy and delicious! I made it with whole wheat spaghetti and baked an artichoke for the veggie, but you can serve whatever you like.

I used my grandmother's china (first time using it!) and it made it all the more special.

Happy Monday!

Prep: 15 minutes | Total: 50 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 skinless boneless chicken breast, pounded thin (could be made into 4)
  • 3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (I used whole wheat)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted (or olive oil)
  • 3 - 4 slices reduced fat mozzarella cheese
  • 1 jar marinara (I used Mario Batali Marinara)
  • whole wheat pasta

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Spray a large baking sheet lightly with spray.
  2. 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.
  3. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven, spoon 1 tbsp sauce over each piece of chicken and top each with 1 slice mozzarella cheese.
  5. Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted. (Can saute in a pan, covered, too)
