I made this when I was on the South Beach Diet. It was one of the few things I made that the kids still wanted to eat off my plate 🙂
- boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- favorite (no sugar added) spices (watch the labels for sugar, a lot of spices sneak it in there)
- sliced or shredded mozzarella cheese
- tomato sauce
- whole wheat pasta (if desired)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Trim fat and season chicken breasts
Sear chicken breasts in favorite low fat oil
Bake on broiling pan for 25 minutes
Flip and bake again for 10 minutes
Heat sauce and season to taste
Turn off oven and place cheese over top of the chicken breasts (I broiled them but it’s not necessary, the heat from the oven will melt the cheese). Leave in warm oven until cheese is melted.
Top with tomato sauce and enjoy!
When I made this dish during the first two weeks of the diet I ate it by itself, but during phase two I ate it over whole wheat pasta.
