A healthy version of chicken parmesan that is crispy, crunchy, cheesy and oh so good! Serve over zucchini noodles for a low carb meal.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray large baking dish or cookie sheet with cooking spray.
In a shallow bowl or plate combine panko bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
Brush melted butter on both sides of chicken breasts
Dip each piece of chicken into breadcrumb mixture making sure to cover the entire surface with crumbs.
Place coated chicken on baking sheet/dish and spray with a light coating of cooking spray. Place in oven and bake 20-25 minutes or until cooked through and lightly golden.
Remove from oven and place a large spoonful of sauce on top of each chicken breast and top with a handful of mozzarella. Place back in the oven for 5 minute or until cheese is melted.
Serve over zucchini noodles or pasta
You can serve the zucchini noodles raw, but I like to heat a small amount of olive oil in a skillet and quickly saute with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
