Skillet Chicken Parmesan

1/3 C Breadcrumbs
1/3 C Grated Parmesan Cheese
½ tsp Dried Oregano
¼ tsp Garlic Salt
1 Large Egg
4 Bonless Skinless Chicken Breasts (about 1 pound)
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
¾ C Marinara Sauce
¾ C Shredded Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese

In a shallow bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, oregano and garlic salt. In another shallow bowl, beat the egg until frothy.

Wrap the chicken breasts in plastic wrap and place on a cutting board. Gently pound each breast with a mallet to an even thickness (about ½ inch). Dip each breast into the beaten egg to coat and then roll in the breadcrumb mixture.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is well browned and just cooked through.

Spoon the marinara sauce evenly on top of the chicken, and sprinkle mozzarella on top. Cover the pan, reduce heat to low, and cook for 3 more minutes until the cheese melts.

Serves 4
