  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2 full breasts)
  • ¾ cup breadcrumbs (can reduce to ½ to lower the carbs)
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup pasta sauce any flavor
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Pasta for serving


  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a 9x9” pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Depending on the sizes of your chicken breasts, slice each longwise into 4-6 ounce pieces.  Place breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a shallow dish and stir.
  • Place each chicken breast into the breadcrumb mixture to thoroughly coat both sides. Place in pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until they start to look done and crispy.
  • Remove hot pan from the oven and top with pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese. Return to oven and bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and chicken is cooked through. Serve over pasta, if desired. We also like to serve this with just a salad for a lower carb meal.
