A lower fat version of an Italian favorite! Serve with a side of steamed veggies for a 9 point dinner.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fillet chicken breasts by slicing them in half horizontally.
  2. Pound the thicker part of each fillet, if desired, to even the thickness of the breast, resulting in more tender chicken.
  3. Sprinkle both sides of fillets with salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste.
  4. Heat a large skillet on medium heat, and when hot, spray skillet with fat-free cooking spray.
  5. Brown fillets by cooking in skillet for 2 minutes per side. You may have to do this in batches.
  6. Add the marinara sauce to the skillet, cover, and finish chicken in the sauce until cooked through. Stir every couple of minutes.
  7. Top the chicken with mozzarella cheese, using only 1 oz of cheese per serving of chicken. Cover skillet and cook until cheese is melted.
  8. Top one cup of pasta with 1/2 cup of marinara sauce and 2 fillets of chicken.

I hope that me and sugarpea are not the only two to make this because this is great! I also hope that the 9 points is not turning anyone away because it is worth it!!! For those of you who crave something, chessy, patsa-ey, and chicken-ey, you will love this. i added sauted mushrooms and garlic before i added the cheese at the end. next time i will use garlic salt instead of reg. salt and i will either add some fresh herbs or italian seasoning.! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! We will be making this again next week. :)

Gilded the lily with a little garlic and some Italian seasonings. I dare you to eat just one ounce of mozzarella.
