Skinny Chicken Parm

OMG! I made the best dinner two nights ago.

I found the recipe for a “skinny chicken parmesan” on Prevention R.D’s blog and am now in love! I made a few simple changes when I actually made this, but Italian food is always a winner in my book, so when I found this recipe I knew I had to make it and share with you all.

IMG_0607Mouthwatering? Right?

And trust me, it tastes as good as it looks 🙂

Plus, you can’t hate on how super easy it is to make!

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (~8 oz each), halved width-wise to create thinner breasts
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, warmed (plus more for pasta, if desired)

How to make:

1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

2. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add oil. Once the oil is hot, stir in your breadcrumbs until they turn a golden color (about 10 minutes). Spread the bread crumbs in a shallow dish and cool slightly; when cool, stir in about half of the Parmesan.

So that pretty much wraps up the food portion of my blog post today. And I must once again apologize for failing at posting! I seriously don’t know where the time is going. I feel like I never have a moment to sit down and write. But I promise I will try to do better over the next few days! Plus, I should have some exciting things to post about in the upcoming days…Seriously 😉

So that’s all for now folks,
