Healthy Chicken Parmesan

I love so many of Hungry Girl's recipes! If you haven't heard of her, click on the name and check her out! I get her daily emails, and am always learning new things. One of my favorite topics she covers is Swap-outs or fake-outs. I tried this one tonight and everyone, including V, ate it!

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup Fiber One cereal
1/4 cup Egg Beaters, Original**
2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated using Adjustable Microplane
1 cup shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup canned tomato sauce
Optional: garlic powder, basil, oregano, salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Add parmesan to crumbs (if desired, season crumbs with optional spices, as well).

Place crumbs in one Coating Tray and Egg Beaters in another of the Trays.

Next, fillet chicken into cutlets so you have 8 pieces. Coat raw chicken on both sides with Egg Beaters, and then coat with crumb mixture.

Place chicken on Large Sheet Pan sprayed with nonstick spray. Spray a light mist of nonstick spray on top of chicken and place in oven. Cook for 10 minutes, and then turn chicken over. Add another light mist of nonstick spray and cook for an additional 10 - 12 minutes (or until chicken is fully cooked and coating looks crispy).

Meanwhile, if desired, mix tomato sauce with your seasonings of choice. Remove chicken from oven, top with sauce and then cheese, and return chicken to oven until cheese is melted. Enjoy! Serves 4

Serving suggestion: Serve with whole wheat spaghetti or linguini noodles and steamed veggies.
