Wow I feel like I have so much to jam pack into this one post it’s crazy!  Recently I received an amazing package from Muir Glen Organic Tomatoes with all sorts of yummy goodies in it.  Anyone that knows me knows I LOVE Italian food and so when I saw all these tomato products to try, I knew I’d have some fun ideas!  Make sure to check out their fabulous site to see ALL the delicious products they offer!  All their tomatoes are field grown and vine ripened organically for healthy, delicious tasting meals.

One of my favorite dishes growing up was chicken parmesan.  My mom would coat the chicken in tons of flour and bread crumbs, fry it up with tons of oil and top it with tons of cheese…mmm.  Sounds healthy doesn’t it?  Yeah well I wanted to do a lightened up version for those that have cut this sinful dish completely out of their diet.  Welcome back chicken parm!  Doing a similar take on my Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken, I put shredded reduced fat mozzarella cheese in the chicken along with chopped fresh parsley and wrapped the chicken around it.  I coated the stuffed chicken with whole wheat bread crumbs and reduced fat parmesan cheese and baked them instead of frying.
Using Muir Glen’s organic fire roasted diced tomatoes and fat-free chicken broth, I made a delicious tomato sauce to be served with the chicken parmesan.  We LOVED this take on the classic dish and would definitely make this again soon!  Feel free to incorporate some angel hair pasta with your dish and serve the sauce and chicken over top, yummy!

Recipe adapted from Food Network
Serves: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 cup fat-free low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can fire-roasted diced or crushed tomatoes
  • 5 or 6 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 thin (1/8 inch-thick) chicken cutlets
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 6 oz. shredded reduced fat mozzarella cheese (about 1 cup)
  • ¼ grated (or shredded) reduced fat parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg white
  • Cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cook the broth, garlic, tomatoes and basil in a skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
  3. Season the chicken with salt and pepper; please smooth-side down on a work surface. Sprinkle with the parsley and mozzarella. Starting at the short end, roll up to enclose the filling. Secure with a tooth pick. Mix the parmesan and breadcrumbs in a shallow dish. Put the egg white in another dish and beat until foamy.
  4. Mist a cast-iron skillet with cooking spray. Dip the chicken rolls in the egg white, then coat with the breadcrumb mixture. Place in the skillet, seam-side down. Sprinkle with remaining breadcrumbs and mist with cooking spray.
  5. Bake until cooked through, about 25 minutes. Serve with the tomato sauce and enjoy!
