Hungry Girl is here to help with the dinner that delivers all the rich goodness of this traditional Italian dish, completely guilt-free. Uh oh, don't miss the dinner bell!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup canned crushed tomatoes with basil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 cups bagged broccoli coleslaw
  • 1/4 cup bran cereal, finely crushed
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tbsp egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
  • 4 oz raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlet, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
  • 3 tbsp shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

Season tomatoes with 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder and onion powder or more to taste.

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add broccoli slaw and 1/2 cup water.

Cover and cook until fully softened, 10 to 12 minutes. Uncover and, if needed, cook and stir until water has evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes.

Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl, stir in three-fourths of the seasoned tomates, and cover to keep warm.

In a wide bowl, mix crushed cereal with Italian seasoning, remaining onion powder.

Place egg whites or substitute in another wide bowl.

Coat chicken with egg, shake to remove excess and coat with crumbs.

Re-spray skillet and return to medium heat. Cook chicken for 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

Top chicken with remaining tomatoes, and sprinkle with cheese.

Cover and cook for 2 minutes, or until cheese has melted.

If needed, reheat saucy slaw in microwave.
