Grilled Chicken Parmesan

Classic chicken parm is deep-fried and smothered in cheese — a restaurant portion can top 1,000 calories and 50 grams of fat! My slimmed-down version allows you to enjoy this Italian favorite without delivering a blow to your arteries and waistline.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 4 Servings
  • 4 chicken, breast, boneless, skinless (6 ounce)
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup cheese, mozzarella, part-skim, shredded (4 ounces)

Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with oil spray.

Grill the chicken breasts or sauté in a skillet coated oil spray over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until no longer pink in the center.

Transfer the chicken breasts to the prepared baking sheet. Top each chicken breast with 2 tablespoons marinara sauce and ¼ cup cheese. Place under the broiler until the cheese is hot and bubbly (or microwave for 30 to 60 seconds to melt cheese).
