Main Course -- Chicken Parmesan
6 - 8 boneless chicken breasts
One quarter cup olive oil
Four tablespoons Italian seasoning
Two tablespoons dried oregano
Two teaspoons garlic powder
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 6-oz. can tomato paste
1 14-oz. can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Heat oil in a skillet. Combine the Italian seasoning, oregano and garlic powder. Sprinkle the seasonings evenly on both sides of the chicken breasts. Brown the chicken breasts in the skillet on both sides until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken and set aside. Place tomatoes, tomato paste, and garlic in the skillet and heat through. Serve chicken over cooked pasta with the tomato mixture poured on top and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
The Skinny: Use skinless chicken breasts. The recipe is already more healthful than traditional chicken parmesan because you don’t bread the chicken before browning. You can adjust the seasonings for the chicken breasts to your own taste.
