Heart Healthy Chicken Parmesan Recipe
Preheat oven to 375°. Lightly coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
In a small saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the tomato sauce, basil and pepper. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Place egg and bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls. Dip chicken breasts into egg and then dredge in bread crumbs.
Arrange chicken breasts on baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
Spread half of the tomato sauce in a casserole dish. Place baked chicken on tomato sauce and spread remaining sauce over chicken. Sprinkle mozzarella and Parmesan over chicken. Cover with foil.
Bake for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
