Healthy, Simple Chicken Parmesan

There’s something so satisfying about taking a dish not normally known to be healthy and finding a way to enjoy without any guilt. So here’s my take on the classic Chicken Parmesan:

Servings 2 (save one for lunch or share it with someone!)

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

  • 2 chicken breasts, boneless/skinless
  • 1 egg, whisked with a fork
  • 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes mixed with 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 1-2 medium zucchinis, spiralized/ zoodled
  • 1-2 cups broccoli, 14 asparagus or other green vegetable on the side
  • Mrs. Dash Italian seasoning (or Italian herb seasoning)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Dip chicken breast into egg and then coat with breadcrumbs.
  3. Place in glass cooking pan (sprayed lightly with cooking spray).
  4. Cook for 20 minutes, take out to top with cheese and cook another 3-5 minutes or until cooked through.
  5. Put diced tomatoes & spaghetti sauce in skillet with zucchini noodles. Toss and cook for 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle with Mrs. Dash Italian Seasoning.
  6. Put half zucchini noodles with sauce and one chicken breast on plate.
  7. Serve with broccoli, asparagus or other green vegetable of choice! (I love steamed broccoli with cayenne pepper)

This meals leaves room for a little dessert (mango & whipped cream anyone?) or a little extra sprinkle of cheese or breadcrumbs guilt-free!
