My healthy version of chicken parmesan is baked which make it lighter than the traditional recipe. My total grocery bill was $14.07.


Healthy Chicken Parmesan Cooking Tips:

You can remove the skin before you place the cheese on top before placing it back in the oven.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: After chicken parmesan cools off, place in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 days max.

Reheating: Pop in a 350-degree oven for 10-15 minutes.

Substitution Options:

To make this even healthier use whole grain pasta.

The fat of the thigh keeps the chicken moist and tender. However, you can use boneless chicken thighs or chicken breast.

This recipe can be remixed with different proteins and vegetables throughout the year.
