- 4 (8 oz) chicken breast halves, sliced in half
- 3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (I used 4C whole wheat)
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tbsp butter, melted
- 3/4 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese (I used Sargento)
- 1 cup marinara or Filetto di Pomodoro
- cooking spray
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.
Lightly spray a little more cooking oil on top and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Turn chicken over, bake another 5 minutes. Remove from oven, spoon sauce over chicken and top with shredded cheese. Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
*Although you may notice the Weight Watcher calculations on the recipe I'm not following it. The sourced recipe I used had the calculations and, it being the only weight loss program I personally feel okay with, I left them on.
*Also, I didn't have the seasoned breadcrumbs so I seasoned regular breadcrumbs with italian seasoning, garlic powder, and a bit of oregano/thyme.
