Ingredients
  • Nonstick cooking spray (olive oil or butter), for coating the baking sheet and chicken
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, gently pounded to an even thickness
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups seasoned Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 cup prepared pizza sauce (not tomato sauce)
  • Four 1/4-inch-thick slices fresh mozzarella
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.

  • Season each chicken breast with salt and pepper, then coat each breast with cooking spray. In a shallow bowl, mix the breadcrumbs and Parmesan. Press the chicken breasts into the mixture 1 at a time to coat on all sides, shaking off the excess. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Bake, flipping halfway through, until the juices run clear, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Remove the chicken from the oven and turn on the broiler. Spoon the pizza sauce evenly over the top of each chicken breast and top with a slice of mozzarella. Place under the broiler and watch for the cheese to melt and bubble. Serve.
