Skillet Chicken Parmesan

Easy recipe that saves on calories by not breading the chicken first...still delicious!

1 tablespoon olive oil
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 1/2 cups Prego® Traditional Italian Sauce
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (about 6 ounces)

 

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until well browned on both sides.

Stir the sauce and 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese in the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle with the mozzarella and remaining Parmesan cheese. Let stand for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve on a bed of cooked spaghetti noodles.

Caprese Sandwich

Light sandwich for a quick weeknight meal!

1 lb crusty baguette
1 whole garlic clove, cut in half
2 whole ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
24 whole fresh basil leaves
4 oz fresh mozzarella, drained and cut into 1/2-inch dice
2 to 3 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp drained capers
1 pinch kosher salt
1 pinch black pepper

Lay the baguette on a cutting board. Make a lengthwise cut down the middle, starting on the top of the loaf and cutting to but not through the bottom. (A serrated knife works best for cutting.) Gently pry open the loaf to make a V-shaped cavity.

Rub the sides of the cavity with the cut garlic. Arrange tomato slices down each side of the cavity, followed by the basil leaves.

Gently mix the cheese, olive oil, capers, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Spoon this mixture into the loaf, between the rows of tomato and basil. Cut the sandwich crosswise into 6-inch lengths and serve.
