Light and Healthy: Grilled Chicken Parmesan

January 7, 2013

This grilled chicken parmesan is a healthy version of one of your favorite comfort foods.  Instead of a chicken breast being breaded and fried, they are seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled.  They are topped with a heart healthy tomato sauce and low-fat cheese.  This dish will decrease calories but won't sacrifice flavor.

Grilled Chicken Parmesan


16 oz Chicken Breasts, boneless & skinless
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup Prego Heart Smart Spaghetti Sauce
1/2 cup Low Fat Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
4 Tablespoons Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese, shredded
Olive Oil Spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and preheat grill to high heat.
Mist both sides of the chicken breasts lightly with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Grill the chicken for 4 minutes per side (or until it is no longer pink inside). Transfer to a baking dish.
Heat the sauce until warm and divide evenly on top of chicken. Follow with mozzarella and then parmesan.
Bake for 5 minutes.
