Chicken Parmesan

½ cup seasoned bread crumbs
3 tablespoons parmesan cheese, divided
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast, pounded to ½ inch thickness
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons margarine
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
¼ teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 o F. Mix crumbs with 1 tablespoon parmesan in shallow dish. Dip chicken into beaten egg. Roll in crumb mixture to coat.

2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add chicken. Cook, turning once, about 5 minutes. Place in a lightly greased baking dish.

3. Add tomato sauce, basil and garlic powder to skillet; mix well with pan drippings. Simmer for about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.

4. Spoon sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with mozzarella and remaining parmesan. Bake for 20 minutes.

I add this to green beans and a salad (I eat so many salads on this diet…) and it makes a delicious meal!
