This dish is very similar to Chicken Parmesan, but this is the healthier version. Instead of using Parmesan, I used light cheese. I also don’t like dousing the crispy chicken with sauce before covering it with cheese and then baking it. I’m just not sold on the idea of making a crispy chicken only to cover it with sauce and make it soggy.  So, here’s my version.

Baked Crispy Chicken Spaghetti

Ingredients

    Baked Chicken
  • 500 grams Chicken breasts
  • 1 cup Panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
  • 1/4 cup Flour - all-purpose
  • Egg whites of 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
  • Basic Tomato Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves Garlic (minced)
  • 1 Large onion (minced)
  • 800 grams Whole stewed tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons Tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons Dried oregano

  • Black pepper (to taste)
  • Baked Chicken
  • 80 grams light cheese orMozzarella cheese (grated)
  • 450 grams Dried spaghetti

Directions

  1. Put the oven rack in the middle position and preheat to 350 degrees F (175 C). Put a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet.
  2. Prepare flour (I season it with salt and pepper), Panko bread crumbs and egg white in different bowls.
  3. Season chicken breast slices with salt and pepper, then dust with flour to coat evenly.
  4. Dip the floured chicken in the egg, then the breadcrumbs. Make sure to cover both sides of the chicken slices.
  5. Place them on the wire rack, then drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil evenly over the chicken.
  6. Bake coated chicken slices for 20-25 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium heat and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  8. Saute the garlic, then add the onions.
  9. Add the stewed tomatoes, tomato paste, and dried oregano. Season with salt and pepper.
  10. Simmer until the sauce thickens.
  11. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
  12. Arrange the cooked spaghetti on a plate and top with sauce. Put crispy chicken slices on top and sprinkle with cheese.
  13. You may choose to bake it until the cheese melts.
