“A lower fat version of an Italian favorite! Serve with a side of steamed veggies for a 9 point dinner.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fillet chicken breasts by slicing them in half horizontally.
  2. Pound the thicker part of each fillet, if desired, to even the thickness of the breast, resulting in more tender chicken.
  3. Sprinkle both sides of fillets with salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste.
  4. Heat a large skillet on medium heat, and when hot, spray skillet with fat-free cooking spray.
  5. Brown fillets by cooking in skillet for 2 minutes per side. You may have to do this in batches.
  6. Add the marinara sauce to the skillet, cover, and finish chicken in the sauce until cooked through. Stir every couple of minutes.
  7. Top the chicken with mozzarella cheese, using only 1 oz of cheese per serving of chicken. Cover skillet and cook until cheese is melted.
  8. Top one cup of pasta with 1/2 cup of marinara sauce and 2 fillets of chicken.
