Chicken Parmesan

This isn't the normal Chicken Parmesan that you are familiar with, but it's just as good. The addition of grated Parmesan cheese to the breading adds the cheese flavor that you might be missing on top. Serve it with a vegetable and you have a really satisfying dinner.



Chicken Parmesan
Serves 1

3 oz uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, flattened
2 Tbsp seasoned bread crumbs
1 tsp reduced fat grated Parmesan topping
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup egg substitute
1 tsp olive oil
1 Tbsp low-fat spaghetti sauce

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Combine the bread crumbs, grated Parmesan cheese and garlic powder on a shallow plate. Place the egg substitute in a shallow bowl. Dip the flattened chicken in the egg substitute, and then coat in the bread crumb mixture.

Spray a small nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add the olive oil and set over medium-high heat. Place the chicken in the skillet and heat until browned on both sides, about 4 minutes. Transfer browned chicken to prepared baking sheet. Spoon the spaghetti sauce on top of chicken. Bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes.

(One serving is 5 pts)
