I was craving chicken parmesan… so i decided to make chicken parm with no breading and used grilled chicken instead!

RECIPE:
1 package thinly sliced chicken breast OR 1 package regular chicken breasts sliced in half long-ways
1 cup tomato sauce (i used classico tomato and basil)
1/4 cup grated romano cheese
1/4 cup grated mozzarella
6 small fresh mozzarella balls, diced OR sliced fresh mozzarella (1 piece per piece of chicken)
garlic salt
pepper
red pepper flakes
dried basil
dried oregano
handful of chopped spinach and fresh basil (garnish)

season one side of each piece of chicken with each of the spices to your taste
in a baking pan, layer 1/2 cup tomato sauce and make sure it’s evenly spread on the bottom
in a large skillet on medium-high heat, sear the chicken with olive oil and brown on both sides
after browning, lower heat and pour about 1/4 cup water into the pan and cover
cook for about 5 minutes
transfer chicken to baking pan to make one layer of chicken
top with the rest of the tomato sauce and then top with all three cheeses
bake at 350 for about 15 minutes until cheese is bubbly
remove from oven and top with chopped spinach and fresh basil

enjoy!
