Healthy Baked Chicken Parmesan
Health Highlights


1/2 cup Bread crumbs, whole wheat
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tsp Italian herb seasoning, McCormick
1/2 tsp Granulated garlic
1/2 tsp Onion powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Black pepper
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
908 gm Chicken breast cutlets
3/4 cup Tomato sauce, canned
3/4 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a medium bowl mix together the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, granulated garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

Coat a sheet pan with the olive oil.

Dredge each chicken cutlet in the breadcrumb mixture and place on the sheet pan. Discard the rest of the breadcrumb mixture.

Bake the chicken for 15 minutes. Turn over and bake for another 15 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven and spread 2 tablespoons of sauce and 2 tablespoons of shredded mozzarella cheese on each chicken cutlet.

Place back in the oven and cook for 10 - 15 minutes or until sauce is hot and cheese is melted. Serve hot.

Tip: You can dredge the chicken ahead of time in the breadcrumbs and store in a container in the refrigerator. Or you can make the chicken parmesan completely ahead of time, store in the refrigerator or freezer, and then reheat in the microwave.
