  • 24 oz chicken breasts, boneless and skinless, 3 large, cut in half to make 6 thin pieces
  • 1 large egg white
  • ½ cup panko crumbs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup marinara sauce
  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • olive oil spray or cooking spray
  • spaghetti noodles, zucchini noodles, for serving, optional


  • Preheat oven to 450°F and place a baking rack in a sheet pan. Grease the baking rack with some olive oil or cooking spray.
  • Slice chicken breasts in half lengthwise to create 6 equal size pieces or pound smaller pieces with meat mallet so all the chicken is the same thickness about ½ inch thick.
  • In a shallow bowl, combine the panko, parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • Beat the egg white until its frothy. Brush some of the egg white on one side of the chicken. A little goes a long way.
  • Place the chicken egg white side down into the panko mix. Press the chicken down so the crumbs stick to the chicken.
  • Brush the other side of the chicken with beaten egg white, then flip the chicken over and press it down into the crumbs. Use a fork or spoon to press crumbs into sides of chicken if needed.
  • Place breaded chicken on greased baking rack.
  • Repeat until all the chicken is breaded and on the baking rack.
  • Spray the tops of the chicken with olive oil or cooking spray.
  • Bake the chicken for 25 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from oven and spoon a heaping tablespoon of marinara on each piece of chicken. Then top each with 2 tablespoons of shredded mozzarella.
  • Bake for another 5 minutes until the chicken reaches 160°F internally.
  • Let the chicken rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.
