Delight your family with this wonderful main dish for dinner tonight. They will love you for it!!
2 egg whites
1 tablespoon water
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 (4 oz) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon olive or canola oil, divided
4 (1 oz) slices mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup pizza sauce, heated
1. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites and water until foamy. Add the garlic; stir to blend. In a shallow dish, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and salt; blend well.
2. Dip chicken in egg white mixture; coat with the crumb mixture, shaking off the excess. Dip each piece again in egg white mixture; coat again with crumb mixture.
3. In a 10-inch skillet, heat 1-1/2 teaspoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Add the prepared chicken. Cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Add the remaining 1-1/2 teaspoons oil and cook an additional 4 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the center.
4. Place 1 slice of mozzarella cheese on top of each chicken breast. Reduce heat to Low and cook, covered, until the cheese is melted; about 3 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and drizzle with heated pizza sauce. Makes 4 servings.
