Ingredients

Sauce:

  • 20 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

Chicken:

  • 4 chicken cutlets
  • 1/4 cup Italian Breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons shredded Mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • In a medium sauce pan, heat tomatoes with salt, Italian Seasoning and minced garlic. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until ready to serve.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spray a 13" x 9" baking dish with cooking spray. Spoon just enough of the tomato sauce to cover the bottom of the dish, and spread evenly.
  • Prepare three shallow bowls - one with sifted flour and salt and pepper, whisk egg whites in the second, and mix the breadcrumbs with the Parmesan Cheese in the third.
  • Coat one side of the chicken in flour, then egg white, then the breadcrumb mixture. Place breaded side up in the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until juices are clear and top is browned.
  • Sprinkle cheese on top of chicken, if desired, during the last five minutes of cooking time.
  • Spoon tomato sauce on top of chicken.
  • Serve with pasta or veggies.
