Baked Chicken Parmesan

I have just recently become a fan of Chicken Parmesan. I am not really sure why I haven't ordered it before, but it is fabulous! This is a healthier version and it tastes just as wonderful. I am definitely pulling this one out again in the future to help with those Italian food cravings.

Baked Chicken Parmesan
From: Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes
Serves 8 5.5 ww points

4 (8 oz) chicken breast halves, sliced in half
3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp butter, melted
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 cooking oil on top and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Turn chicken over, bake another 5 minutes.

Remove from oven, spoon sauce over chicken and top with shredded cheese. Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
