I came up with idea for this recipe when I saw on the box of Fiber One cereal that you could use it as a substitute for bread crumbs.
1 cup finely crushed original Fiber One Cereal
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp Italian seasonings
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 egg whites
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 pound chicken breast cutlets
I usually buy chicken breast and pound them out. It is a great way to relieve stress, but the cutlets were on sale that week. You may need to tweak the seasonings to suit your family's tastes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9 pan with cooking spray.
Finely crush the Fiber One cereal. I used my blender, but you can use a food processor or smash in a plastic baggie.
Add crushed cereal to a bowl and mix in seasonings
Set up an assembly line of the chicken, egg whites and cereal mixture
Dip the chicken in the egg whites.
Coat chicken with cereal mixture.
Bake for about 15 minutes and remove from oven.
Cover with pasta sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
Return to oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until sauce is heated and cheese has melted.
Serve over cooked linguine or any pasta you choose.
My family loved this meal, they never even suspected they were eating something relatively healthy.
