Simple, Healthy Chicken Parm!

Here is how I make chicken parmesan. Wes of course, likes all the manly meals, so this recipe is healthy yet flavorful as always. You may notice that I use ground flaxseed as a coating quite frequently and this is because Wes and I both eat gluten free. The ground flaxseed also provides a dose of healthy fats and some fiber.

Ingredients:

3 chicken breast

1/2 cup ground flaxseed

¼ cup grated parmesan cheese

1 Tbsp italian seasonings

1 tsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 jar spaghetti sauce

3 slices mozzarella/gouda

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix flaxseed, parmesan cheese and seasonings in a shallow bowl. Fillet (cut in half) chicken breast, run under cool water and coat in “bread crumb” mixture. Next, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sear each side of the chicken breast until golden brown (2-3 minutes a side once the pan warms up) then place in a 9×13 baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.

This extra step is what makes this meal spectacular!

Spoon spaghetti sauce over each chicken breast and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and top each chicken breast with half a slice of cheese and bake for 10 more minutes. Bon Appetite!

Remember to always cook chicken thoroughly!

Tonight I served this with spaghetti squash and mushrooms, which didn’t appeal as much to the manly man as it did to this healthy hungry girl!

This one never gets old!

Quick Tip: Store flaxseed in the refrigerator to keep it from going rancid.
