Pinterest Test – Baked Chicken Parmesan

Posted June 18, 2015 by Kathy in Pinterest Test / 0 Comments

Pinterest Test is a feature in which my daughters and I try out one of the thousands of pins I have collected on Pinterest. This feature will include recipes, beauty tips, crafts, etc. (you name it – I most likely pinned it!). Feel free to follow me on my personal or blog account.


This Week’s Pin is:

Baked Chicken Parmesan

Pin from

Baked Chicken Parmesan


  • 4 (about 8 oz each) chicken breast, fat trimmed, sliced in half to make 8
  • 3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (I used whole wheat)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted (or olive oil)
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese (I used Polly-o)
  • 1 cup marinara or Filetto di Pomodoro cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 450°. Spray a large baking sheet lightly with spray. Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a bowl. Melt the butter in another bowl. Lightly brush the butter onto the chicken, then dip into breadcrumb mixture.  Place on baking sheet and repeat with the remaining chicken.
  • Lightly spray a little more oil on top and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Turn chicken over, bake another 5 minutes.  
  • Remove from oven, spoon 1 tbsp sauce over each piece of chicken and top each with 1 1/2 tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese. 
  • Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.

Final Verdict:


My family liked this but it needs some tweeks to the recipe. This recipe is a keeper!


My daughter loves Macaroni Grill’s chicken parmigiana but I wanted a recipe that didn’t involve frying so this recipe was just what I wanted. But I made the following changes: I seasoned the chicken with pepper & garlic powder before brushing the butter on. I flipped the chicken after 10 minutes. This turned out good but it was a little dry. At my daughter’s request I put a lot of cheese on the chicken and this helped with the dryness. I ate it with spaghetti squash (to cut down on the carbs) & my family ate it with spaghetti.



Have you tested out any pins recently that were hits or misses?
