  • 4 (4 ounces each) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even 1/2-inch thickness
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 large tomato, cut into 8 slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella or provolone cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 425F degrees. Coat a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt and then brush both sides of them with the mayonnaise.
  • Place the crumbs in a large zipper-close plastic bag. Add the chicken breasts, one at a time, and shake to coat evenly with the crumbs.
  • Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Top each piece of chicken with the tomato slices and then drizzle evenly with the oil.
  • Top each tomato slice with the basil and then sprinkle evenly with the mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly and beginning to turn lightly golden, 12 to 18 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with the Parmesan and serve.
