This Baked Chicken Parmesan recipe is so straightforward and easy, and most of that is thanks to Green Giant and their new line of vegetable products.

I used their Riced Cauliflower (SO GOOD) and Roasted Broccoli in this new favorite recipe, and they were the perfect simple compliment to the Chicken Parm. The Riced Cauliflower was especially delicious, substituted for my typical pasta side I would serve with a dish like this. Little substitutions can make a big difference when trying to make better choices for your family, and Green Giant makes it easy! In fact, this veggie alternative to traditional rice has up to 80 percent fewer calories than traditional white rice.

Ingredients
  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil finely chopped
  • 1 bag Green Giant Riced Cauliflower
  • 1 bag Green Giant Roasted Broccoli
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F and spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Whisk egg in a shallow bowl until well blended. In a separate shallow bowl, stir together the breadcrumbs, parmesan, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  3. Start by dipping each chicken breast in the egg mixture, coating both sides. Shake to remove excess egg, then dip into the breadcrumb mixture. Press into the crumbs on both sides to coat as thickly as possible. Place chicken on the baking sheet. Repeat with all four chicken breasts.
  4. Spray the chicken breasts lightly with olive oil spray or baking spray.
  5. Place in the oven and cook for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and add the frozen broccoli to both sides of the pan. Be sure to break apart the pieces and lay them as flatly as possible on the baking sheet. It's okay if some overlap.
  7. Continue baking the chicken and broccoli for another 5 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven and spread the marinara over the chicken breasts, then top with the shredded cheese. Return to the oven for 3-4 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted. Switch the oven to broil (optional) to allow for the cheese to bubble a bit more and the veggies to crisp slightly (about 2 minutes). Watch closely, because you don't want to burn the veggies or the cheese.
  9. While the chicken is in the final 5-6 minutes of cooking, prepare your Riced Cauliflower according to package instructions; 5-6 minutes in the microwave. Remove from the bag and plate the cauliflower evenly onto 4 plates.
  10. Remove chicken and broccoli from the oven, top with chopped basil, and serve!
  11. Enjoy!

Great idea, Bec. I can't wait to try this slim version of one of my favorite dishes. Thanks!
Shari giarraputo
Becky I have a question. I normally use Panko breadcrumbs. I always use flour first to help the Panko stick to the chicken after dipped in egg. Ii it not necessary in this recipe. The recipe sounds so delicious. I would like to make it this weekend. Thank you for posting
    Becky Hardin
    I didn't find that to be necessary since baking them they lay flat and adhere...but it's totally up to you. Can't hurt to add that in! I hope you love the recipe :)

Perfect colours! Perfect lunch! Inviting photos ! Thank you and have a nice day !
Karim
I'd rather make this with fresh rather than frozen veggies. Would I be able to put fresh broccoli in with the chicken initially and be okay?
    Becky Hardin
    Yep should work great. I'd sprinkle with some salt and pepper. If they're getting too cooked you could just take them out when ready. Enjoy!

Nice post. I like it very much. Thanks for sharing
Sabrina
thank you for this new twist on one of my favorite recipes! Love the riced veg instead of gobs of pasta, the pasta I've always thought of as wasted effort anyway in this dish since the chicken is the star and baked in this case much better than fried! Of course love the single pan!
Valerie
Your photos are amazing! Makes everything look so delicious!
Nice
