Grilled Cicken Parmesan
4 (4 oz) chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
Olive oil (I used a sprayer but DON'T use one that has propellant! We have one you can refill)
Salt, to taste
Ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup Marinara sauce, or other low-fat, low-sodium, low-sugar sauce
6 tbsp low-fat mozzarella
2 tsp reduced fat parmesan cheese
How to make it:
Preheat oven to 350. Preheat a grill to high heat (I used a George Forman). Light mist both sides of the chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the chicken for 3-5 minutes per side or until it is no longer pink inside. Transfer to a baking dish (I lined my dish with reynolds wrap... easy clean up!) Heat the sauce on low in the microwave until warm (I did about 2 minutes) Top each breast with 2 tbsp marinara sauce, followed by 1 1/2 tbsp mozzarella and 1/2 tsp parmesan. Bake the chicken for 3-5 minutes in the over, just enough to melt the cheese. Makes 4 servings.
(this was before I stuck it in the oven, we were hungry so I have no "finished product" pictures)
