Chicken Parmesan
Chicken Parmesan

After yesterday’s debacles (which also included undercooked hardboiled eggs I learned about this AM.😟 – see that egg recipe perfected here!), this meal made up for it all.

Oh my goodness, SO delicious all around. Nothing I would change…

I’m feeling satiated and accomplished.

Chicken Parmesan Recipe

  • 1 1/2 lbs thin-cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, freshly shredded
  • 1 cup no sugar added / low sodium tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup pork rind, finely crushed
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) + EVOO spray for greasing baking dish
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning (see my Nearly Italian Seasoning recipe)
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  1. In a Ziplock-style gallon storage bag, marinate 1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts with 1 Tbsp EVOO, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp Nearly Italian seasoning, and 1/2 tsp red pepper for at least 15 mins.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  3. Lightly spray a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with EVOO.
  4. Place marinated chicken in baking dish and pour 1 cup tomato sauce over it – as evenly as possible.
  5. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese and 1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese.
  6. Sprinkle 1/2 cup crushed pork rinds over the top.
  7. Bake for 30 mins, or until chicken is cooked through (a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest center of a breast will read at least 165 F) and cheese is melted and bubbly.
