Healthy Baked Chicken Parm






This baked chicken parm recipe is a great way to enjoy a classic favorite of many, but with a healthy twist that still manages to make it taste completely delicious!  If you follow the original Weight Watchers, each piece is 5.5 points if you cut a full breast in half, less points if you use the thin chicken cutlets.  The cutlets I used were only 100 calories each piece.

The recipe calls for:
4 chicken breasts (sliced in half) or thin chicken cutlets (which I used)
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (optional)
2 tbs of melted butter or I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray (which I used, less calories) 
3/4 cup of shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
1 cup of marinara sauce


-- Preheat the oven to 450, spray the baking dish with cooking oil.
-- Combine breadcrumbs & parmesan cheese in a bowl.
-- Lightly brush or spray the chicken with butter then dip them into the breadcrumb mixture.  Place the chicken in the baking dish & repeat with the rest of the chicken.
-- Lightly spray the top of the chicken with cooking spray & put it in the oven for 20 minutes. (or less for the thin chicken cutlets)  After the time is up, turn the chicken over & bake for another 5-10 minutes.
-- When time is up, take the chicken out of the oven, spoon a little marinara sauce on each piece of chicken & top it with a little bit of the mozzarella cheese.
-- Put the chicken back in the oven until the cheese is melted & then it's ready!  Serve it with a vegetable on the side to keep the meal healthy.
