Italian Chicken Parmesan Recipe

This healthier version of chicken Parmesan comes from Margie Pharr of Belmont, Mississippi. The savory seasonings make the chicken and sauce a perfect pair, and you won't even miss the extra fat and calories.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh basil
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Directions

  • 1. In a shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and basil. In another shallow bowl, beat egg white until foamy. Dip chicken into beaten egg white, then roll in crumb mixture; place in a 1-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.
