Chicken Parmesan

I found this recipe over at Gina's, too, and absolutely love it! You'd never know that it's only 231 calories for each serving!

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
1 cup marinara or Filetto di Pomodoro (I just used spaghetti sauce)
cooking spray

*Preheat oven to 450°. Spray a large baking sheet lightly with 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.
