Recipe

Lately one of my favorite things to cook is rethinking classic dishes that normally are full of fat and calories and try to come up with a healthier version. One classic dish I love is chicken parmesan, but when I simply breaded and baked the chicken, sometimes I found it a little bland. To boost the flavor, this time I decided to crust the chicken in a combination of Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs to amp up the flavor and it came out great. This recipe is just for the chicken, which would also be great on it’s own or over a salad. Add five points for 1 cup cooked whole wheat pasta and 1/2 cup 1 point sauce.
