Skinny Chicken Parm

It has been ages since I have posted. I wish I had a good excuse, but I don't.
I have been LAZY, LAZY, LAZY.

This recipe isn't super exciting, and it isn't anything new, but it was DELICIOUS and HEALTHY - 2 things that do not always go hand in hand.  The whole family loved it, which is why it will become a new kid-friendly staple in our house.

The recipe is from  Sorry the pic is so crappy.  The lighting was terrible, bc it is always dark/cloudy during our Wisco Winters.

Baked Chicken Parm

4 (about 8 oz each) chicken breast, fat trimmed, sliced in half to make 8
3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp butter, melted (or olive oil)
3/4 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese
1 cup marinara 

cooking spray
Preheat oven to 450°. Spray a large baking sheet lightly with spray.

Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a bowl. Melt the butter in another bowl. Lightly brush the butter onto the chicken, then dip into breadcrumb mixture. Place on baking sheet and repeat with the remaining chicken.Lightly spray a little more oil on top and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Turn chicken over, bake another 5 minutes.

Remove from oven, spoon 1 tbsp sauce over each piece of chicken and top each with 1 1/2 tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
