Chicken Parmesan

This chicken is so good... it is from Weight Watchers. We used spaghetti sauce once instead of tomato sauce which added points, but gives it more flavor. We also use the chicken tenders from Costco which are much smaller than the whole breast. You also don't have to pound the tenders as they are already pretty thin. (for those of you who want to know the points it is 5 points for 1 4-oz. piece or 3 of the tenders)

1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, thinly pounded (four 4-oz pieces)
2 large egg white(s), lightly beaten
1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp olive oil
1 1/2 cup canned tomato sauce
1/2 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat an 8-inch square pan with cooking spray.
  • Dip chicken in egg whites, and turn to coat. Then mix bread crumbs with Italian seasoning and dip chicken in bread-crumb mixture; turn to coat thoroughly.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet; add chicken. Cook until lightly browned and no longer pink in center, about 4 minutes per side; place on paper towels to drain.
  • Pour 1/2 cup of sauce into prepared baking dish; place chicken in dish and pour remaining sauce evenly over chicken. Sprinkle with cheeses and bake until bubbly, about 25 minutes.
