The Best Chicken Parmesan recipe, made a bit healthier! Breaded chicken cutlets are baked, not fried yet the chicken is so moist and full of flavor.

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts (about 8 oz each, sliced in half lengthwise to make 8)
  • 3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (I used whole wheat, you can also use GF crumbs)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter (melted (or olive oil))
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese (I used Polly-o)
  • 1 cup marinara or Filetto di Pomodoro
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a large baking sheet lightly with spray.
  • Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a bowl. Melt the butter in another bowl. Lightly brush the butter onto the chicken, then dip into breadcrumb mixture.  Place on baking sheet and repeat with the remaining chicken.
  • Lightly spray a little more oil on top and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, spoon 1 tbsp sauce over each piece of chicken and top each with 1 1/2 tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
