Ate It: Chicken Parmesan

Face it, Chicken Parmesan is one of the best Italian dishes around. Skip the expensive white tablecloths and $8 glasses of wine and make your own at home. Plus, it’s a weight watchers recipe, so you can leave the guilt at the restaurant.



  • Two chicken breasts (I use frozen and thaw the night before)
  • 1 cup of bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 6 tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup of pasta sauce
  • 1/2 cup of cheese (I use Provel, because this is Saint Louis. But Mozzarella will do just fine)



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine bread crumbs, basil, oregano, garlic powder and Parmesan in a shallow dish.
  3. Whisk egg into another shallow bowl.
  4. Dip chicken in egg mixture (both sides), then bread crumb mixture. Place on baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Top with pasta sauce & cheese, and put back in oven until cheese melts.
  7. Eat!
