Chicken Parmesan

Friday, April 15, 2011

I got this recipe from a woman named Gerri a few years ago who had a blog called Less of Me Medifast Journey. I don't think her blog is up anymore so I am so glad I saved this recipe! The chicken is very moist and so delicious! I remember the first time making it, it smelled soooooo yummy while it was baking in the oven! My mouth was watering! I was just hoping it tasted as good as it smelled and it sure did! It did not disappoint! The crust isn't really crispy, but there is definitely a lot of flavor! Unlike other chicken parmesan recipes, this one doesn't use breadcrumbs, which makes it a great low carb option! 


The chicken comes out perfect every time! Roasting at high heat temperature for 20 minutes keeps the chicken delightfully juicy and flavorful!


I placed the chicken on a cup of cooked spaghetti squash (2 Greens). Then spread 1/4 cup of Rao's Marinara Sauce (1 Green) on top of the chicken. To finish, I sprinkled 2 tbsp of mozzarella cheese on top. A meal the entire family loved!


Chicken Parmesan

Ingredients:

27 oz raw boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts (3 Leans)
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp reduced fat Parmesan Cheese, grated (6 Condiments)
1 teaspoon Basil (1/2 Condiment)
1/2 tsp Dried Oregano (1/2 Condiment)
1/2 teaspoon Paprika (1 Condiment)
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder (1 Condiment)
1 1/2 tbsp Butter, melted (3 Healthy Fats)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with non-stick foil.
In a bowl, combine parmesan cheese, basil, oregano, paprika, and garlic powder. Set aside.
I like to pound my chicken breasts thin and then cut them lengthwise in half.
Toss the chicken with melted butter in a medium sized bowl, coating evenly.
Then dredge the chicken in cheese mixture. I just placed the chicken on the prepared baking sheet and sprinkled the parmesan cheese mixture on both sides of the chicken.
Bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked.

3 Servings with 1 Lean, 3 Condiments and 1 Healthy Fat per serving
