Today I am sharing my mom’s 30 Minute Chicken Parmesan Easy Recipe. We are really making and effort to eat heathy 90% of the time so this chicken parmesan recipe is made with low sugar tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. Mozzarella is a low fat cheese and great if you are watching your calories and fat intake. Of course, in moderation.
I always tenderize the chicken with a meat tenderizer to help the meat cook more evenly and quicker.
Once the chicken was tenderized, I added a small amount of low sugar tomato basil sauce to a baking pan and then added the chicken on top.

My son loves pasta and while this is not the healthiest, I do like a small portion with any Italian meal. Have you guys tried the frozen veggie pasta noodles? I love them!
They look like pasta and have the same texture except they are made from cauliflower.
It’s a great alternative to regular pasta.

My mom’s 30 minute chicken parmesan came out delicious and the chicken was so juicy.
I also think tenderizing the chicken allows the tomato juices to get inside the chicken and helps make it flavorful.
I would love any ideas for healthy chicken recipes that are fairly quick and easy. A friend of mine gave me a recipe with shredded chicken and peanut oil. I am thinking that would be really good with the veggie spaghetti or noodles. You can find more of our healthy balanced living page.
