Skinny Chicken Parmesan
I really like Italian meals. I imply, who doesn’t love a great pasta, cheese and a few superb sauce?? But what I don’t love is the guilt that comes in spite of everything of that carb loading…ugh. I actually wished to nonetheless be capable to eat scrumptious meals once I made the large change to my consuming plan and well being, however I clearly couldn’t eat it the best way I had been with tons of cheese, thick breading and a mound of white pasta. After just a few changes although, this recipe turned out to be a brilliant tasty addition to my household’s menu with a lot much less guilt accompanied with consuming it! As you may see by the image, I eat mine off of the counter it’s so good! Just kidding… I ought to have re-thought the clear plate:)
(Side Note- I hate measuring. These quantities are estimates and might clearly be adjusted relying on how many individuals you might be cooking for)
2-3 Chicken Breasts, trimmed
1 jar/container of spaghetti sauce (Try to get sugar-free or higher but, make your personal! Here’s a terrific recipe for a wholesome sauce. I take advantage of my father-in-laws AMAZING home made sauce)
1 container of 100% entire wheat bread crumbs seasoned with italian seasoning, garlic, pepper and a touch of salt
4 egg whites (Or 1 cup in the event you purchase them in a container like I do)
1/4 mozzarella cheese
Olive Oil Spray for pan
Fresh grated parmesan, about 3/4 of a cup or so
4-5 massive zucchini
Preheat oven to 375. Cooking time will range relying on the dimensions of your rooster breasts. Cover cooking pan with tinfoil after which spray olive oil on foil to stop sticking. Prepare your coating by seasoning the bread crumbs and including in 1/4 of the Parmesan cheese. Spread this out on a flat floor, this make it simpler to coat the rooster. Trim the fats off of the rooster breasts, pat them dry with a paper towel (this helps issues stick higher). Dip rooster breasts into the egg white combination and permit extra to drip off. Lay dipped rooster over bread crumbs, flip over and repeat on the opposite aspect. I don’t put a thick layer of breading on my rooster as a result of extra layers simply provides extra guilt;) Lay the coated rooster breasts down on the tinfoil. Spoon 2-3 heaping scoops of sauce overtop of every rooster breasts. Finish with a lightweight, gentle sprinkle of mozzarella cheese. Bake for 25-Half-hour.
Prepare the zucchini by chopping into “noodles”. You can use a vegetable Julienne device to do that, however I don’t have one so I simply slice every one into skinny noodle-like items. Boil some water on the range, similar to you’ll to arrange common pasta with a pinch of salt. Boil the z-oodles till they’re versatile however to not the purpose of being mushy. This solely takes about 4 minutes. Drain the z-oodles and dry them or allow them to sit and air dry earlier than plating.
Place the z-oodles on a plate, cowl with the quantity of sauce you like and end that off with the remaining parmesan. When the rooster is completed, place this on high of your skinny spaghetti and VOILA! Delicious Skinny Chicken Parmesan.
You can serve this with a salad, however you have already got the mandatory vegetable content material in your noodles and it’s a filling dish!
