Chicken Parmesan

Tastes like the real deal but uses "South Beach friendly" ingredients.



  1. Mix ground oatmeal (old-fashioned), parmesan cheese and herbs together in a shallow dish. Heat olive oil in a frying pan.
  2. Pound thawed chicken breast to roughly 1/3". Coat in oatmeal mixture making sure to press into meat.
  3. Fry chicken breasts in pan until cooked (about 5 minutes a side).
  4. Meanwhile, heat spaghetti sauce (low sugar if possible) and keep warm until chicken is done and turn on oven broiler.
  5. Spoon spaghetti sauce into oven-safe baking dish and then put the cooked chicken over the sauce. Last, layer with cheese and broil until cheese melts and is starting to brown.

Meat = no good for detox

The oats and pasta sauce have way too many carbs in this one.
Great for Phase 2 of the South Beach diet - just be sure to use low/no fat mozzarella and low sugar sauce!
