Chicken Parmesan

Made By: Ryan Noelle     February 11, 2013

     Here is a really quick and simple meal to whip up for the fam!  I took skinless boneless chicken breast and breaded them in almond meal.  Simply bake those and serve on a bed of shredded veggies and smother with my Red Sauce and some low fat mozzarella! Voila, dinner is served!  Low fat and SKINNY chicken parmesan!  You will never miss your old fried chicken parm friend.  This is your healthy and great tasting alternative!

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut in half to make 8
  • 3/4 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. italian seasonings
  • 1 egg

Get Cooking:
So simple.  In one bowl crack and beat 1 egg.  In a separate bowl add the almond meal, and spices mix well.  Take 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts and dredge in egg, I do mine one at a time.  After the egg dunk the chicken into the almond meal mixture.  Place your chicken on parchment paper on a baking sheet.  Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes.  At half way through cooking i like to flip my chicken breasts.  To brown them even more the last 3 minutes of cooking you can place it under the broiler.  Not necessary it just is for appearance :)   Juices will run clear, and chicken will not be pink inside it will be white, when the chicken is done.   Smother the chicken with my Red Sauce and place on top of shredded veggies.  I used yellow squash and zucchini shredded with a cheese grater.  Yum, Yum!
