Ingredients

Non-stick cooking spray

6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, pounded 1/2-inch thick  

Kosher salt and black pepper  

Kosher salt and black pepper

1 cup all-purpose flour   

3 egg whites

1/4 cup skim milk  

1 1/2 cups Italian-style breadcrumbs  

1/2 cup grated Parmesan 

1 1/2 cups marinara sauce  

12 slices low-fat mozzarella 

Fresh basil leaves, for garnish 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Set a wire rack over a baking sheet and spray with non-stick spray.
  2. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Set up a breading station with three baking dishes or pie plates. In the first, mix the flour with a generous amount of salt and pepper. In the second, whisk together the egg whites and milk. In the third, mix the breadcrumbs with the Parmesan.
  3. Bread each chicken breast by first coating in the flour, shaking off the excess; then dunking in the egg whites; and, finally, dredging in the breadcrumb mixture, again shaking off the excess. Place the breaded chicken on the prepared wire rack.
  4. Bake until the chicken is cooked through and the coating is browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Top each breast with 1/4 cup of the marinara sauce and 2 slices of mozzarella cheese.
  5. Return to oven and bake until the cheese is bubbling, another 5 to 10 minutes. Garnish with basil leaves, and serve.
