I didn't eat this one because I was not feeling well, but I also didn't get a picture of it because before I could dish some up to take a picture, the kids had devoured it. I am taking it that this is a "keeper" recipe. As the title says, I got the recipe out of my Biggest Loser Family Cookbook. It has some really good recipes that I plan on trying. For the sauce, I made a quadrupal batch last week and froze it in 4 different containers. This way, when I need the sauce, I just put it in a pan and thaw it. It is yummy too. Hope you enjoy it. I served it with Pasta but you can also serve with salad.
Grilled Chicken Parmesan
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
2 cups Main Event Marinara (recipe below)
1/2 c. shredded mozzerella cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 and preheat a grill to high heat.
Lightly brush both sides of the chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the chicken, turning once, for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until it is no longer pink inside and juices run clear. Transfer to a baking dish.
Heat the sauce on low in the microwave until warm. Top each breast with 4 T. marinara sauce, followed by 1/4 of the mozzarella cheese. Bake the chicken for 3 to 5 minutes, or just until the cheese is melted.
Main Event Marinara Sauce
1 cup minced yellow or white onion
2 T. freshly minced garlic
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup water
2 T. no-salt-added tomato paste
2 tsp. honey
2 T dried oregano
2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Salt, to taste
Spray a medium nonstick saucepan with olive oil spray and place over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until just becoming tender (they should not brown), 4 to 6 minutes. Reduce the tomato paste, honey, oregano, basil, and pepper flakes until well combined. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for at least 1 hour. Season with salt, if needed.
