We wanted to try something different in the air fryer. We thought about how we had two big containers of Prego sauce opened. So we decided to try making our own Parmesan Chicken! I found a Chicken Parmigiana recipe on the Weight Watchers app that was 4SP. I didn’t have all the ingredients so I kind of just made my own recipe. My boyfriend loved it, so I decided to share it all with you!
I am on the WW Blue Program and when I entered in my recipe, it came out to 4SP a serving. Wahoo!
Of course, feel free to experiment with your own ingredients.
My ingredients: 4 servings
2 chicken breasts, cut in half to make a total of 4 cutlets – I sliced off all the of the fat (0SP)
6 tablespoons of Kikkoman Panko breadcrumbs (2SP)
2-1/2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning (0SP)
3 tablespoons of Grated Parmesan & Romano – I used Safeway Select brand (2SP)
8 tablespoons of Prego Traditional Lower Sodium Italian Sauce (3SP)
8 tablespoons of Natural Mozzarella Cheese, shredded – I used Lucerne brand from Safeway or Albertson’s (10SP)
Oil Spray – I used Chosen Foods Avocado Oil Spray from Costco (0SP)
First, slice each chicken breast in half- length-wise to give yourself a total of 4 cutlets.
Combine bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, grated Parmesan & Romano cheese in a bowl.
Lightly spray a side of a cutlet and dip it into the breadcrumb mix. Repeat on the other side. Do this for each cutlet.
Heat your air fryer at 360°F. Place your cutlets into your basket- make sure you don’t stack them.
Spray the top of the cutlets with oil and cook them for 18 minutes. Flip the breasts over half way.
When it has been 18 minutes, be sure that the internet temperature is 165°F.
Top each cutlet with 2 tablespoons of Prego Italian sauce and 2 tablespoons of Mozzarella cheese. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes to melt the cheese.
We paired these with a steamed broccoli (0SP) – absolutely delicious and filling!
