Baked Chicken Parmesan

Baked Chicken Parmesan
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.
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Main dish
  • 4 (about 8 oz each) chicken breast, fat trimmed, sliced in half lengthwise to make 8
  • ¾ cup seasoned breadcrumbs (I used whole wheat, you can also use GF crumbs)
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted (or olive oil)
  • ¾ cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese (I used Polly-o)
  • 1 cup marinara or Filetto di Pomodoro
  • cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a large baking sheet lightly with spray.
  2. 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.
  3. Lightly spray a little more oil on top and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven, spoon 1 tbsp sauce over each piece of chicken and top each with 1½ tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese.
  5. Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
