Thank you Gina for another delicious weight watchers recipe. The recipe calls for the obvious mozzarella but this dum dum went to the grocery store and completely forgot it, so I had to use what was on hand...but who can discriminate against cheese? Not me! My husband and I really enjoyed this dish. Not heavy at all and you don't feel bad about eating it because it's HEALTHY!! woo hoo!! I served it with some whole wheat thin spaghetti sprayed with "I can't believe it's not butter" and sprinkled a little grated parm on hubbys pasta. This took little prep and will be made again and again. Of course next time I won't forget the mozzarella. ;) Also you only see 4 chicken breast in my photo. I used 2 and cut them in half so I had to half the recipe because it calls for 4 chicken breast halved into 8 but when it's just the two of you that's a lot of food. Wow I hope that made sense.

Servings: 8 • Size: 1 piece • Time: 40 minutes • Calories: 231 • Points: 5.5 ww points
- 4 (8 oz) chicken breast halves, sliced in half
- 3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tbsp butter, melted
- 3/4 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese (I used Sargento)
- 1 cup marinara or Filetto di Pomodoro
- cooking spray
Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a bowl. Melt the butter in another bowl. Lightly brush the butter onto the chicken, then dip into breadcrumb mixture.
Place on baking sheet and repeat with the remaining chicken. Lightly spray a little more cooking oil on top and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
Turn chicken over, bake another 5 minutes. Remove from oven, spoon sauce over chicken and top with shredded cheese. Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
