Directions

1. Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C). Oil a sheet pan or a cast iron skillet.

2. Depending on the sizes of your chicken breasts, slice each one to make 1/2-inch thick fillets. Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a shallow dish.

3. Place each chicken fillet into the breadcrumb mixture and coat both sides. Place breaded chicken fillets in the sheet pan or skillet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until they start to look done and crispy.

4. Remove from the oven and top with pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese. Return to oven and bake 5-10 minutes more or until cheese is melted and chicken is cooked through. Top with chopped basil and serve over zucchini noodles for a low carb meal, along with lemon slices to drizzle over.
