Skinny Chicken Parm

Hi everyone! We’re officially over “the hump” & creeping closer to the weekend… woohoo!

Tonight’s post is going to be short & sweet. I’ve been totally failing at my goal of waking up at the first sound of my alarm – often “sleeping in” an extra 10-15 minutes. I know I need more sleep, so I’m trying to make sure I’m done with my to-do list early tonight! Plus, I’ve got a long day ahead of me tomorrow, so I definitely need as much rest as possible!

Last week, I saw this post on Ashley’s blog & it reminded me how much I’ve been wanting to make chicken parm.

In order to save time (& calories!), I whipped up an extremely easy & quick “chicken parm bake.” Even better? This meal only requires 4 ingredients, all of which are cheap & you’re likely to have on-hand!

Skinny Chicken Parm Bake

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • Pasta sauce (I used garden vegetable for added flavor)
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Thin spaghetti

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400*.
  • Spray a shallow baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Place chicken breasts in the baking dish & season (I used salt, pepper, & garlic salt).

  • Cover chicken with pasta sauce & top the entire dish with a generous portion of the shredded mozzarella.

  • Bake for 25 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
  • Serve on top of spaghetti!

Fast, easy & Chris-approved; definitely one to add to our dinner rotation! :-)

Are there any meals/foods that you eat on a weekly basis?

      I’ve been trying a lot of new things since getting married, but I’m running out of ideas/getting busier as the school year progresses. My husband may be seeing a few familiar meals in the near future!

      Same with me & pizza! Pasta I would like to eat at least once a week, but my husband isn’t a huge fan of pasta-based meals.

    thanks for the shout out! I’ve seen these mysterious thin sliced chicken breasts at the grocery store, usually end up grabbing chicken breast strips or tenderloins because I don’t know what to do with the thin sliced breasts – until now! your variation is definitely going to be on next week’s menu :)

      You’re welcome Ashley! I loved this because you literally just throw everything in a baking dish & walk away for 25 minutes!

      I definitely got more sleep but was just as tired this morning! Ugh; I’ll definitely be catching up over Christmas break! :-)
