WFD: Baked Pizza Chicken

A twist on chicken parmesan, this is a favorite comfort food recipe of mine.


  • 2-3 boneless chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • 2 tabelspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup Prego veggie smart pizza sauce
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 tsp oregano 
  • 1/4 tsp basil
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp parsley
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
    • optional (remember, we like it spicy)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix bread crumbs w/ seasoning mixture.
  3. Spray chicken breasts with olive oil mister (or coat with 1/2 tblspn and use brush to spread).
  4. Season chicken breasts as desired (I used oregano and garlic powder).
  5. Dip chicken breasts into breadcrumbs until coated.
  6. Fry chicken on the stove with olive oil (use mister to coat or 1 tblspn) 2-3 minutes each side.
  7. Put chicken breasts into baking pan and top with shredded mozzarella.
  8. Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  9. Remove from oven and top with Prego pizza sauce and a dash of oregano.
  10. Return to oven and bake for 45 minutes or until juices run clear / chicken reaches internal temp of 165.
