Chicken Parmesan - Low Fat

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by CountryLady

A quick, easy & healthy version of one of my favourites; I usually serve it alongside Pasta Shells With Zucchini & Spinach but it marries well with any pasta! I use Dee514's Italian Blend Spice Mix rather than a store-bought mix.

I can't believe I haven't rated this yet! I've been making this for at least a year now and it's simple, kid-friendly, and low budget. Three of my favorite things. But the best part is, it's yummy! Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove any clinging fat from the chicken and discard; wash and pat dry.
  2. Lay chicken between sheets of waxed paper- I save cereal box liners for this purpose; gently pound with the fleshy part of your fist (or a meat mallet) to flatten slightly.
  3. Rub all over with Italian dressing& let it sit while measuring out the remaining ingredients.
  4. Combine bread crumbs and seasonings on a piece of wax paper.
  5. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with cooking spray and place over medium heat.
  6. When hot, dredge dressing coated breasts through the bread crumb mixture and sauté until golden, about 5- 8 minutes per side.
  7. Spoon some spaghetti sauce on top of each breast, sprinkle with Parmesan& top with mozzarella; cover pan and continue to cook over medium heat until sauce is hot and cheese melts, about 3-5 minutes.
