"Even the kids love it! Thin chicken breasts are dusted in bread crumbs (seasoned with Parmesan cheese, basil, and oregano), then baked for 10-12 minutes. Top with mozzarella, return to oven for 1 minute. Serve with a favorite organic spaghetti sauce." — Farm Lady

dry bread crumbs
grated Parmesan cheese
ground black pepper
4 (4 ounce)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded 1/4 inch thick
butter-flavored cooking spray
shredded mozzarella cheese
I made my own marinara sauce and I doubled the spices in the breading as well as added garlic/onion powder. I did not use butter-flavored spray, either. I used a mixture of butter and extra virgin olive oil and I browned the breasts in the hot skillet before laying them in a baking dish and finishing them off. My family liked this meal very much, it was a nice change from spaghetti sauce with ground beef or sausage. They actually asked me to make this again soon. Next time, I'll make an extra breast for my husband as he wanted seconds and there wasn't enough for him to have another.
I recognized this as a slightly modified Weight Watcher recipe, so I thought I would give it a try. While the butter spray shaves off a fat gram or two, I found that the breading never really gets crispy or golden brown like a true parmesan chicken. By comparison, I still prefer frying the chicken in a hot skillet with a small amount of olive oil until the outside is golden and crispy (about 3min per side.) Transfer to a baking dish, top with sauce and cheese and bake until the chicken is done and the cheese is melted. Also, you can use Italian seasoned bread crumbs rather than using plain and adding seasonings.
My picky (REALLY picky) 7 yr old LOVED this recipe. I recommend choosing a thick and robust spaghetti sauce for best results. A few changes I did was to use 1/2 c. italian seasoned breadcrumbs and 1/2 c. panko breadcrumbs. I baked the chicken on parchment paper to help it stay crispy and for the non-stick benefit. It was crispy when done and the entire family loved this recipe, it is going into our regular menu rotation!
Turned out great!! Thanks, didn't have to change anything!
Really great recipe, we made the chicken without the sauce, and without the mozzarella cheese, but just substituted extra parmesan for it and it was very good!
I didn't think this had a lot of flavor but it was okay.
This turned out really good!!A keeper!!!
This was great, I used seasoned bread crumbs so didnt season as the recipe said, I will season it next time for sure because there wasnt enough in the crumbs. Great dinner, family loved it. Making again this week! Thanks for the recipe
