Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs

1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

Two 5-oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breasts

1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper

3 tbsp. shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup (about 2 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute

1/4 cup marinara sauce with 3g fat or less per serving

2 tsp. grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

In a medium bowl, mix breadcrumbs with 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, and 1/4 tsp. onion powder.

Pound chicken to 1/2-inch thickness. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. onion powder, and 1/8 tsp. each salt and pepper. Top with mozzarella. Tightly roll up each chicken breast, and secure with toothpicks.

Place one stuffed chicken breast in a wide bowl. Evenly top with half of the egg. Shake to remove excess, and transfer to an air fryer basket sprayed with nonstick spray. Generously coat with half of the seasoned breadcrumbs. Repeat with remaining stuffed chicken breast. Evenly top with any remaining breadcrumbs.

Set air fryer temperature to 365 degrees. Cook for 20 - 25 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.

Place marinara in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 20 seconds, or until hot.

Top chicken with marinara and Parm.
