Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Servings: 4 people
- 20 ounce can crushed tomatoes
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 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
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.
