4 (6 oz) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 tbsp olive oil, divided
1/2 cup tomato and basil pasta sauce
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

3. Fully coat one chicken breast in flour, then in egg whites, then in breadcrumbs. Repeat this process with the remaining breasts.
