Sometimes the best way to a healthier you and to drop a few pounds is to just change a few habits. Our love for carbs seems to get us in trouble. This recipe still has carbs but using a high fiber whole-grain cereal for the breading really makes a difference. But we added plenty of flavor with the herbs in the crushed breading.
Also using a cooking spray reduces the amount of fat during the frying process. Then we top off this Chicken Parmigiana with a low-fat cheese and add a dash of flavor with crushed red pepper flakes. None of us will stay on a diet that restricts us too much, we will fall off at some point. So if you fall off that restrictive diet or you wish to just lead a healthier lifestyle, then this is the way to do it.
My favorite way to serve this Chicken Parmigiana is with steamed asparagus. And add a fresh crisp salad with low-fat Italian dressing to make it a delicious low-calorie meal.
I hope you enjoy this dish and wish you loads of luck with your goals for a healthier you. You can do it, just take one day at a time. Eat exactly today what you need to eat, get a little more active and just enjoy your life.
