Cheesy Chicken Parmigiana Servings: 2 / Total Time: 40 mins


• 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce

• 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

• 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

• 1 large egg

• 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs

• 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

• 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)

• 2 tablespoons olive oil

• 2 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese

• Fresh basil leaves, optional


• In a small saucepan, combine the tomato sauce, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

• Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, lightly beat the egg. In another shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Dip chicken in egg, then coat with crumb mixture.

• In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat until a thermometer reads 165°, about 5 minutes on each side. Top with mozzarella cheese. Cover and cook until cheese is melted, 3-4 minutes longer. Serve with tomato sauce. If desired, sprinkle with basil and additional parmesan.
