Generally speaking, Italian dishes are not very good for your waistline, but this version of a classic dish is actually pretty healthy...and it still tastes great, too! You really don't even miss the breading that generally comes on chicken parmesan.

The original recipe says to grill the chicken...but it was 25* yesterday. I added in alternative directions.
1 lb chicken breasts
Olive oil in sprayer
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
1/2 c marinara of your choice
mozzarella cheese, shredded
- Preheat oven to 350*
- Preheat grill to high. (or preheat skillet to med-high)
- Mist both sides of chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the chicken (or cook in skillet) until no longer pink inside. Transfer to baking dish.
- Heat the sauce on low until warm. Top each piece of chicken with about 2 tablespoons of sauce, followed by mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
- Bake for 3-5 minutes, or just until the cheese is melted.
