This Chicken Parmesan is lighter and healthier than the traditional version, but just as flavorful, filling and fresh as the original.

Ingredients

Tomato Sauce

1
cup crushed tomatoes
1
teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Pasta

4
oz uncooked multigrain angel hair pasta
1
cup low-sodium chicken broth, warmed

Chicken

8
oz uncooked chicken breast tenders (not breaded)
1
teaspoon olive oil
1/8
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon pepper
1
cup fresh basil leaves, shredded
2
tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1 In 1-quart saucepan, heat Tomato Sauce ingredients over medium-low heat. Simmer 5 to 7 minutes to combine flavors. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.
  • 2 Heat 4-quart saucepan two-thirds full of water to boiling over medium-high heat. Add pasta; cook and drain as directed on package. Return to pan; add chicken broth, and toss to coat.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in large bowl, toss chicken, olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • 4 Heat 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until browned. Turn; cook 2 to 3 minutes to brown other side.
  • 5 Divide pasta among 4 plates. Sprinkle with basil. Top each with one-fourth of the chicken; drizzle with tomato sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Serve immediately.
Tips  

For an extra pop of green, stir 2 cups baby spinach leaves into the pasta before plating.

Substitute chicken breast for the chicken tenders. You may need to increase the cook time to make sure the chicken is cooked through.
