“I've streamlined this family favorite so you can get it on the table in less than 30 minutes. GOOD TO KNOW: Skinless chicken is a much leaner and healthier option. Although skin tastes good, it has a lot of unhealthy, saturated fat. Dressing up regular chicken breasts with this parm recipe provides flavor and nutrients like calcium and protein.”
4 servings of 1 chicken breast and 2 tablespoons sau

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken breasts flat sides down on a sheet of plastic wrap. Cover with another sheet of plastic wrap. Using a small saucepan or rolling pin, lightly poung the breast to about 1/3-inch thickness. Pat breasts dry with a paper towel.
  2. In a bowl, combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, and oregano. In another bowl, lightly beat egg and salt. Brush both sides of chicken breasts with egg, then lightly coat with crumb mixture.
  3. Warm oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When oil simmers, add chicken breast and cook about 3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Sprinkle mozzarella evenly on top of chicken breasts in last minute of cooking. Transfer breasts to serving plates.
