Chicken parm is a delicious classic, but it’s also traditionally heavily breaded and buried in cheese.
This is a lightened-up, slightly makeshift version. There’s nothing fancy or interesting about it, but it’s a quick, easy way to capture similar flavors without the added calories.
Make it as a simple weeknight dinner served with lots of veggies, obviously.
Pro tip: Make your own simple marinara with garlic, olive oil, and tomatoes, or look for jars that contain just a few whole food ingredients and no added sugar.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
The chicken provides lean protein. Tomatoes in the marinara are filled with vitamins and lots of heart-healthy lycopene (since cooking them actually releases the nutrient).
