  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 4 Servings
Ingredients:
  • 4 five-ounce skinless chicken breasts (or cutlets)
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce *
  • 1/2 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese
Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and coat the baking sheet with oil spray.

Pound the chicken breasts very thin using a mallet or heavy can and arrange the chicken breasts on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until fully cooked.

Sauté the bell pepper and onion in a skillet coated with oil spray over medium-high heat until soft and browned, about five minutes.

Top each cooked chicken breast with 2 tablespoons marinara sauce, ¼ of the sautéed vegetables and 2 tablespoons cheese. Place the chicken back in the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 3 minutes.
