Chicken Parmesan

This is one of our favorite recipes, even our 8 year old loves this meal. To save on the carbs usually we only serve it with a salad and a veggie. It's guaranteed to be a family favorite.

4 (4oz) thin cut chicken breasts

1/3 cup dry whole wheat bread crumbs

1 tablespoon olive oil or cooking spray

¼ cup red wine

1 jar tomato basil pasta sauce

½ cup low-fat or skim mozzarella cheese

¼ cup parmesan cheese

Pound chicken with mallet or large pan until breast thickness is about a ¼”. Coat each chicken breast in bread crumbs.

Heat olive oil or cooking spray in large skillet. Add chicken breast and brown on each side until chicken is cooked through and remove. Reduce heat and add wine to pan to deglaze and then add pasta sauce. Add chicken back to pan and cover each chicken breast with the mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Cover and simmer until the cheese is melted and the sauce is heated.
