Tasty Tuesday!

I love chicken and especially chicken breast.  I find that there are so many different meals I can make with them that are low fat and yummy.  Plus if I can add cheese to a meal you know I am going to have very happy kids.  Like me they LOVE their cheese :-)

With making healthier options at home I recently came across a great recipe and tweaked it a bit for my own family.  As I know mushrooms are a great low calorie filler I decided to add them into the recipe and we served it without any pasta.  We made a salad and some cooked veggies and had a clear dinner winner!

Grilled Chicken Parmesan

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
olive oil -in a spritzer
salt-to taste
ground black pepper-to taste
1/2 cup Marinara 
6 Tablespoons Mozzarella Cheese
2 Tsp Parmesan Cheese
1 cup fried mushrooms

Preheat oven to 350.  Then one breast at a time spray both sides with olive oil and salt and pepper.  Grill chicken for about 4 minutes, or until no longer pink, per side and flip once. While the chicken is grilling fry up mushrooms with a spray of olive oil.  Once chicken is done transfer into a baking dish and top with mushrooms.

Heat up the Marinara sauce and put at least 2 Tablespoons of sauce on each breast then top with Mozzarella (1/2 Tablespoon) and Parmesan (1/2 Teaspoon).  Bake for 3-5 minutes depending on your oven.  Bake it until the cheese is melted!
