I have been craving Italian for quite some time now. When I go out to eat and I see the words “Chicken Parm” on the menu.. I am always tempted. Chicken Parmesan is one of my favorite Italian dishes. I decided to lighten it up and it was delicious. Zoodles are somewhat intimidating, but trust me they are easy. I got my zoodler at Walgreens (infomercial kind) and it is self explanatory from there. Next time you are at the store pick one up and you will use it wayyyy more than you expect to.
-4 chicken breasts
– 1/4 cup of grated parmesan
1 TSP paprika
1 TSP Garlic Powder
1 TSP Black Pepper
1 TSP Parsley
2 TBS Italian Breadcrumbs
Your favorite marinara (I prefer Walmarts new organic brand “Parmesan Romano”
Combine all dry ingredients on a plate and roll each chicken breast in the mix and place of a greased baking sheet.
Cook chicken breasts in the oven at 450 for 25 min. I like to spray olive oil cooking spray on my chicken breasts before placing them in the oven to ensure they get that faux fried taste and crunch.
Garlic Parmesan Baked Broccoli
2 Heads of Broccoli
3 cloves of garlic
1 Tsp of onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut the head of broccoli into florets and toss with dry ingredients and garlic. (HOLD THE PARMESAN TILL THE END OF BAKING)
Bake Broccoli on 450 for 15 minutes. With about 3 minutes left of cooking take out broccoli and coat with grated parmesan. (This ensures the cheese will not burn).
Use a zoodler to spiral the zucchini into noodles. Place all noodles in a microwave save bowl and cover for 3 min until soft. Take scissors and cut noodles.
Serve Chicken Parmesan and zoodles covered with marinara and add your side of broccoli to complete the meal!
