There are a lot of five star reviews for this kid-friendly, lightened up Chicken Parmesean recipe that I found over at Food.com. That extra step of rubbing the chicken with Italian dressing helps to make it moist and flavorful! By using less cheese, it becomes a lighter dish and you won’t even know the difference! Be sure to browse my indexed recipes. I’ve posted other delicious chicken recipes like Sliced Lemon Pistachio Chicken Over Greens and Chicken Pot Pie Soup.
Easy Chicken Parmesan Recipe Lightend Up
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 tablespoons low-fat Italian salad dressing
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning mix
- 1 cup thick spaghetti sauce or 1 cup tomato sauce
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup grated low fat mozzarella
Remove any clinging fat from the chicken and discard; wash and pat dry.
Lay chicken between sheets of waxed paper- I save cereal box liners for this purpose; gently pound with the fleshy part of your fist (or a meat mallet) to flatten slightly.
Rub all over with Italian dressing& let it sit while measuring out the remaining ingredients.
Combine bread crumbs and seasonings on a piece of wax paper.
Spray a large non-stick frying pan with cooking spray and place over medium heat.
When hot, dredge dressing coated breasts through the bread crumb mixture and sauté until golden, about 5- 8 minutes per side.
Spoon some spaghetti sauce on top of each breast, sprinkle with Parmesan& top with mozzarella; cover pan and continue to cook over medium heat until sauce is hot and cheese melts, about 3-5 minutes.
