Parmesan Chicken – 21 Day Fix Approved and an Easier Not Quite Approved Version

I’ve got 2 versions of this: a 21 Day Fix version and an almost 21 Day Fix version.  Sometimes you just don’t have what you need in your pantry and have to improvise. That’s life. Better to have an almost but still healthy version than give up and go get Taco Bell. 

The full FIX version: 
– chicken breast fillets, thin sliced 
– organic whole wheat bread crumbs, or toasted Ezekiel bread crushed into crumbs 
– fresh grated Parmesan 
– Italian herbs, garlic powder
– olive oil spray (so much easier to control amount than the bottle!)
Spray a pan with olive oil. Heat to medium. Mix wheat crumbs and Parmesan, about 2/3 and 1/3 parts respectively. Mix in Italian herbs and garlic powder to taste. Lightly bread the chicken. It should be wet (it IS raw chicken) enough for some light coating to stick. Cook for a few minutes on each side, depending on thickness. 
1 red, 1/4 yellow, 1/2 blue, 1 tsp olive oil 
The Almost-FIX Version:
Same concept. Except you use the Can of Italian bread crumbs that is already in your pantry and the powdered Parmesan (because you forgot to buy the real stuff). It’s close, and will work in a pinch. 
Same containers as above. Don’t beat yourself up over the not as clean ingredients. It’s still MILES better than what you were chowing down on before, right? 
I roasted some baby squash to go with mine. Cut them in half. Little olive oil spray with some herbs. 20 minutes at 400F. 
I also sautéed some red potatoes. Chopped small and sautéed for 10 minutes in a little, you guessed it, olive oil spray and Italian herbs. 
This dinner will please anyone!
