Chicken Parmesan (healthified!!)

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?
