Recipe Ingredients for Light Baked Chicken

12 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup low fat buttermilk
1/3 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 cup Marinara Sauce (see recipe for Perfect Mariana Sauce)
1 ounce fresh mozzarella
1 fresh basil, for garnish

Recipe Directions for Light Baked Chicken

  1. Combine chicken and buttermilk in a shallow bowl or a resealable plastic bag. Marinate for at least 1 hour.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk marinade and press each side into the breadcrumbs to evenly coat.

  3. Heat the olive oil in a medium frying pan over medium-high. Add the chicken breasts and sear on each side for 3 minutes.

  4. Remove the chicken and place on a flat baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes.

  5. Divide the sauce, followed by the cheese, among the two chicken breasts and return the chicken on the baking sheet to the oven to allow the cheese to melt.

  6. Garnish with fresh basil and pasta or any low calorie/low carb spaghetti alternative
