    2 tablespoons whole wheat bread crumbs + 1 tsp italian seasoning

  • 2 teaspoons grated parmesan, optional
  • 1-2 cups low sodium marinara sauce
  • 6 small clove garlic, crushed
  • 6 handfuls baby spinach leaves

Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. As the oil is heating, pound the chicken to 1/4 inch thickness, then sprinkle with bread crumbs, cheese, salt, and pepper, pressing so the crumbs stick. Place in the pan with the garlic and saute for approximately 6 minutes per side or until chicken is fully cooked.

In a saucpan heat the marinara sauce. Add the spinach and cook until it wilts.
