There are days when you have time and do not have time to play in the kitchen. Let alone eat something fast that’s inexpensive and healthy on the go. My healthy version of chicken parmesan is baked which make it lighter than the traditional recipe. This recipe can be remixed with different proteins and vegetables throughout the year. My total grocery bill was $14.07.

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken thighs skin on, bone in
  • 1 tablespoon savory blackening seasoning
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 12 oz. frozen onion & peppers
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 29 oz. can of tomato sauce
  • 1 lbs. angel hair
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 6 slices Mozzarella
  • ¼ brunch parsley chopped

Instructions

  • Bring a tall pot of water to a boil.
  • While water is getting hot, season chicken evenly on both sides with blackening seasoning and rosemary. Sit to the side.
  • Heat a skillet over medium high heat and cook chicken for 4 minutes each side in a dry skillet. Pop in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • When water is boiling, add salt and pasta, cook for 5 minutes. Add frozen vegetables, cover and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and sit to the side.
  • Remove chicken from the oven. Remove chicken and sit to the side, with a paper towel remove excess fat from skillet. Over a medium heat, add butter and garlic cook for 10 seconds. Add tomato sauce bring to a simmer, toss pasta coating evenly with sauce. Add chicken, mozzarella, pop in oven and bake until cheese melts. Garnish with parsley and enjoy!

Notes

Preheat oven to 425 F.
To make this even healthier use whole grain pasta. The fat of the thigh keeps the chicken moist and tender. You can remove the skin before you place the cheese on top before placing it back in the oven.
