This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


1/2 c. unseasoned whole-grain breadcrumbs

2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp. granulated garlic

1/2 tsp. pepper

1 pound chicken breasts

3/4 c. marinara sauce

3/4 c. mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut chicken into four portions. In a medium bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, granulated garlic and pepper. Spray the baking pan with non-stick spray. Dredge each chicken cutlet in the breadcrumb mixture and place on the baking pan. Discard the rest of the breadcrumb mixture. Bake the chicken for 15 minutes. Turn over and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and spread 2 tablespoons of marinara sauce and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of shredded mozzarella cheese over each chicken breast. Place back in the oven and cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until sauce is hot and cheese is melted. Measure the internal temperature of the chicken breast with a food thermometer; it should be at 165 F.
