Chicken Parmesan (Stage 7)

Tastes great with grilled vegetables such as zucchini or asparagus, or could be perfectly paired with a large spinach salad.

INGREDIENTS:
  • - 1 1/2 ounces grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
  • - 1/4 cup whole wheat dry breadcrumbs
  • - 2 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • - 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • - 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • - 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • - 8 3oz chicken breast tenders (serves two tenders per person for a total of about 5oz cooked/person)
  • - 1 tablespoon butter
  • - 2 cups bottled fat-free tomato-basil pasta sauce (such as Muir Glen Organic, serves about ½ cup per person)
  • - 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • - 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • - 1/2 cup (2 ounces) Low Fat shredded provolone cheese

Combine 2 tablespoons of Parmesan, breadcrumbs, parsley, basil, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a shallow dish. Place egg white in a shallow dish. Dip each chicken tender in egg white; dredge in the breadcrumb mixture. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Set aside.
Combine pasta sauce, vinegar, and pepper in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap; vent. Microwave sauce mixture at HIGH 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Pour the sauce over chicken in pan. Sprinkle evenly with the remaining Parmesan and provolone cheese. Wrap handle of pan with foil, and broil 2 minutes or until the cheese melts.

Serving suggestions: Serve with grilled vegetables like zucchini, asparagus or a spinach salad if you are in stage 3, OR with whole grain pasta if you are in stage 7.
