Baked Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan is a classic, and baking it in the oven as opposed to frying it really lightens up the whole dish. I make this when I want a fast and easy dinner that I know everyone will like. You could even make the chicken without the sauce and cheese and use it in a ton of other recipes. Serve with some veggies or on top of pasta for a complete meal.

Here's what you'll need:
  • 3 Large Chicken Breasts $9.93
  • 1 cup Breadcrumbs $0.42
  • 3/4 cup Tomato Sauce $0.66
  • 3 Tablespoons Light Butter $0.42
  • 6 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese $0.62

Serving Size: 1 piece of chicken
Total Servings: 6
Price Per Serving: $2.01

 Preheat your oven to 450 degrees

Prepare your chicken by taking each chicken breast and cutting it in half so you have a total of 6 that are each about 1/2 inch thick.

Melt the butter in a small bowl and spread half on the first side of your chicken breasts.

Pour the breadcrumbs on a plate so that you can place the chicken in them.

Place the chicken in the breadcrumbs and then butter the other side of the chicken. Flip it over and make sure that both sides get coated in breadcrumbs. 

Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and then spread the chicken out on the sheet. 

Bake the chicken for 20 minutes and then flip and bake for another 5. 

Remove the chicken and spoon the tomato sauce over the top, followed by the parmesan cheese. 

Bake for another 5 minutes or just until the cheese has melted.  

I served my chicken with steamed broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes. 

Happy Cooking!
