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
- Four 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- ½ cup marinara sauce, homemade or store-bought
- 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- Dried oregano (optional)
- Red pepper flakes (optional)
Grill the chicken breasts or sauté them over medium heat in a skillet coated with nonstick oil spray for 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until they are no longer pink in the center.
Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat the foil with nonstick oil spray.
Transfer the chicken breasts to the prepared baking sheet. Top each chicken breast with 2 tablespoons marinara sauce, ¼ cup mozzarella cheese, 1 teaspoon Parmesan cheese, and a pinch of oregano and red pepper flakes, if desired. Place the chicken under the broiler until the cheese is hot and bubbly (or microwave it for 30 to 60 seconds to melt the cheese).
