Cooking with Ms Moore : Skinny Chicken Parmesean & Asparagus 

Hi Luvs!

I generally eat healthy, but lately I have really been trying to find or put together “healthier versions” of comfort food or other recipes that are fuller in calories. I made this “skinny” chicken Parmesan with a side of asparagus recently, and it was soooo yummy! This tasty chicken Parmesan is only 180 calories!

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken breast filet
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 1/2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt
  • 2 tsp margarine
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp shredded mozzarella cheese  

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly spray a large baking sheet covered in aluminum foil, with oil.
  2. Season both sides of chicken filet with salt.
  3. In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs and parmesan. In a small bowl, combine margarine and olive oil. Brush margarine and oil mixture on both sides of the chicken, dredge chicken in the bread crumb mixture. Put chicken on baking sheet.
  4. Bake until golden on bottom, about 20 minutes. Turn chicken over and bake for 5-6 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a deep covered skillet, cook the marinara sauce over medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Place baked chicken in skillet and top with mozzarella. Cover the pan and cook until cheese melts, about 3-4 minutes.
