Healthier spin on Chicken Parm - I broil the chicken cutlets rather than fry them!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to broil. If the chicken cutlets are not very thin, place them between parchment paper or in a freezer bag (one at a time) and pound with a meat mallet until thin, about 1/4 inch thickness. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. To prepare the breading mixture, beat the eggs in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. One at a time, place a piece of chicken in the egg mixture and then into the breadcrumbs. Pat them so they are all covered in breadcrumbs and place on a baking sheet. Repeat for each piece of chicken.
  3. Using cooking spray (I use olive oil spray), generously spray each piece of chicken. turn them and repeat spraying on the other side. Place in the broiler for 2-3 minutes on each side. Note: don't walk away! they will cook pretty quickly.
  4. Adjust the oven temperature to 375. In a baking dish, place 1/2 cup of sauce on the bottom and arrange the chicken in the dish. Using a spoon, distribute sauce (about 2 tablespoons per piece) on top of each piece of chicken and then a slice of mozzarella on each. sprinkle with parsley and bake for about 20 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Serve with your favorite pasta, loaf of bread or a vegetable.
