Oven-Baked Chicken Parmesan

OVEN-BAKED CHICKEN PARMESAN – This classic Oven-Baked Chicken Parmesan is a healthy chicken parmesan recipe that’s baked, not fried. Served over whole wheat spaghetti, this is restaurant-quality chicken parmesan, lighted up. 

I’ve been super into Italian lately, if you haven’t noticed. There’s really just nothing better than pastas, pizzas, and Italian baked chicken. Not sorry. No take-backsies.

It doesn’t get much better than chicken parmesan. Although this isn’t an innovative recipe that I created myself, it’s my personal belief that the world can’t have too many Oven-Baked Chicken Parmesan recipes.
This healthy chicken parmesan recipe is baked, not fried! I like to use Panko bread crumbs to add extra crispiness without having to fry it in oil.
Plus, this healthier chicken parmesan is served over whole wheat pasta with just enough marinara sauce to save on all those calories you’d eat going out to an Italian restaurant.
Oven-Baked Chicken Parmesan is a super simple, yet super delicious recipe! Simply bread the chicken, bake it, cover it with sauce and mozzarella, and serve over pasta.

Plus, you can’t get much more crowd-friendly than a healthy chicken parmesan recipe. I mean, who doesn’t like that crispy chicken covered in marinara sauce over pasta?!

Another plus of this lightened up recipe is that you bake the chicken, so there’s no grease mess to clean up. The chicken gets nice and crispy in the oven (I use panko bread crumbs for extra crisp) without having to use all of that fat-adding oil.

Any time you tell me that I can make a healthy chicken parmesan recipe with few ingredients and little effort, I’m a happy girl.
