HG Tip! To pound a chicken cutlet, either lay it between two pieces of plastic wrap or place it in a sealable bag, squeeze out the air, and seal. Using a meat mallet (or other heavy utensil with a flat surface), pound it until uniform in thickness.
Close your eyes, and imagine sinking your teeth into a sandwich stacked with crispy chicken, zesty tomato sauce, and gooey cheese. Open your eyes... The recipe is right here, and it's guilt-free too!
1/4 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal
1/8 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. onion powder
One 3-oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlet, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
1 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
2 tbsp. low-fat marinara sauce
2 tbsp. shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
One 100-calorie flat sandwich bun (like Arnold Select/Brownberry/Oroweat Sandwich Thins)
Place cereal in a sealable plastic bag, seal, and finely crush with a meat mallet or other heavy utensil.
Transfer to a wide bowl, and stir in seasonings.
Place chicken in another wide bowl, top with egg substitute, and flip to coat. Shake to remove excess egg, and coat with crumbs.
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook chicken for about 5 minutes per side, until cooked through.
Still in the skillet, top chicken with marinara sauce and cheese. Cover and cook for 1 minute, or until cheese has melted.
Place chicken on the bottom half of the bun, and add the other bun half. Dig in!
