15-Minute Meal: Make This Easy Chicken Breast Recipe

Sick of the same old, same old? Fancy up your go-to lean protein source with some breadcrumbs and broccoli rabe for an impressive—and satisfying—dinner.

Everyone loves a good chicken parm. Not everyone loves a smothering of sugar-laden sauce and copious amounts of processed mozzarella cheese.

That’s where this quick and easy chicken breast recipe from Westside Market NYC’s Maria Zoitas comes in.

With a little light breading, some fresh mozzarella, and a nutrient-packed topping of sautéed broccoli rabe and sundried tomatoes, you’ll be able to turn that lean chicken breast into a souped-up version of the original. Bonus: It’s fast enough to whip up on a weeknight, yet fancy enough to impress the ladies—Mom included.
