Chicken Parmesan (healthified!!)

by aimee @ shugarysweets on February 1, 2012

See that piece of chicken on the left? It’s not covered in cheese? Yeah, it was mine, and it was surprisingly delicious. Let me tell you a little bit about it.

First, I’ve been trying to cut out some of my carbs since the first of the year. Last year, as my first year of food blogging, I gained ten pounds. YIKES. I had very little self control when it came to sampling my wares.

But I’ve learned (the hard way), that I need to bake in moderation. And sample in moderation. And I thought you all might enjoy this healthy dinner recipe. And if not, then make that piece of chicken on the right, with the panko crumbs and mozzarella cheese. Don’t say I didn’t give you a choice though!

Plus, TRUST ME, the chicken on the left is flavorful, and juicy, and perfect without all the extra calories.

Woah. Who am I?
