Looking for something a little more but yet less for your “diet”? Like Chicken Parmasean but can’t have the calories for adding the moist yet crisp and tasty outer layer? Well, this is one recipe that you will, dare I say, like and lines up with a “Keto” diet as well!
In a large skillet add olive oil and heat on medium.
Add the chicken breast and season with half of the salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Cook for 8 minutes, then flip and season the other side. Now cook for 8 more minutes. Remove from the skillet and place on a plate to the side.
Let's add the garlic to the skillet and cook for approximately 2 minutes. Now add the balsamic vinegar, scraping browned garlic bits with a wooden spoon. Add the can of crushed tomatoes, basil, and red pepper flakes (if using), and stir until combined. Let simmer for 10 minutes.
Take the plated chicken and gently place pieces in the skillet. Place 1 slice of mozzarella on each chicken breast. Cover the skillet with a lid until cheese is melted.
Remove lid, garnish with parsley, and you are now ready to serve.
