I'm Evelyn from My Turn for us and I am so excited to be here visiting with everyone today and wish to thank one of my best buddies, Jamie for the lovely invite!! Just like you l am a major fan of Love Bakes Good Cakes and am honored to be able to share this lower calorie recipe with all of you.  
I am trying to be a little healthier and lose a few pounds in the process, but I refuse to give up my favorite dishes. This Chicken Parmigiana has all the flavor of the original, but with a few changes that make a big difference.  

Chicken Parmigiana-Healthier Version

  • 3/4 cup of All Bran Cereal
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 cup of liquid egg substitute
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, 4 oz pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
  • 1/2 cup low-fat Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • crushed red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)


1. In a blender or food processor grind cereal into crumbs. Transfer into a shallow bowl, add basil, oregano, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper.

2. Place egg substitute into a second shallow bowl

3. One at a time, dip chicken breasts into egg substitute, shaking off excess, then coat with the crumb mixture.

4. Coat large skillet with cooking spray, heat over medium heat

5. Add chicken breasts to skillet, cook, turning once, until no longer pink in center, about 4-6 minutes per side.

7. Reduce heat to low, cover. Cook until cheese melts. 2-3 minutes, sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

My favorite way to serve this dish is with steamed asparagus and a fresh crisp salad with low-fat Italian dressing. That makes a great low-calorie meal!
