Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 lb. of chicken breasts or chicken cutlets
  • ½ cup of low fat milk
  • 1 cup of whole wheat Italian bread crumbs
  • ½ cup of pasta sauce
  • ½ cup of park skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. In a bowl add the milk. Spread the bread crumbs out on a plate and add the fresh parsley, mixing to combine.
  2. Heat an oven proof skillet on medium high heat and add the olive oil, swirling it around for a minute. Using tongs dip the chicken breast into the milk and place on top of the bread crumbs pushing down on the chicken, flip and push down into the bread crumbs again. Place into the skillet and repeat with the rest of the chicken breast.
  3. Let the chicken cook for 2-3 minute and flip to fry on the other side for another 2-3 minutes. Place the skillet inside the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Turn the broiler on, remove the chicken from the oven. Spoon a tablespoon or two of sauce on top of the chicken. Sprinkle with 2-3 tablespoon of mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce. Bake for another 3-4 minutes or until the cheese melts.
  5. Serve on top of cooked egg noodles or pasta of your choice
