(Slightly) Healthier Chicken Parm Cutlets

(Slightly) Healthier Chicken Parm Cutlets 🍝


Last week I posted a similar dinner on my story and I actually got messages asking if it was takeout from a restaurant- it was not. Just a v comforting dish of chicken parm cutlets, Caesar salad, and rigatoni tossed in a tomato-cream sauce 🥰


This version is a *bit* healthier thanks to a few swaps:

- Chicken tossed in plain Greek yogurt instead of flour

- For the breading, I swapped out some of the breadcrumbs and replaced with nutritional yeast (still has breadcrumbs, just not quite as much!)

- @eatbanza high protein chickpea pasta

- @bolthousefarms low calorie Caesar dressing (instead of my usual fav- @kenssteakhouse Caesar 😋)


This recipe makes 2 servings- I love saving the second chicken cutlet & the other half of the pasta for lunch or din the next day!


Here’s what you’ll need:

- 2 thin sliced chicken breast cutlets

- 1 tbsp plain Greek yogurt

- 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs

- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast

- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan

- 1/4 marinara sauce

- 1/2 cup pasta

- 1 tbsp ricotta cheese

- 1 head romaine lettuce

- croutons

- low calorie Caesar dressing

- more Parm as needed 😋
