Baked Chicken Parmesan Cutlets

My kids favorite chicken recipe. This is very versatile. We can make sandwiches out these with some marinara sauce poured on top of the cutlets. The same way it can also be served with pasta.  This also can be served by itself as a snack. A healthy chicken recipe, which uses less oil and is baked. The bread crumbs used here are whole wheat bread crumbs.

1. Chicken breast pieces, 4.
2. Grated Parmesan cheese,  1/2 cup.
3. Garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon.
4. Dried parsley leaves, 1 teaspoon.
5. Salt and pepper as per taste.
6. Beaten egg whites, 1 cup, seasoned with salt and pepper.
7. Toasted whole wheat bread crumbs 2 cups.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, parsley leaves, salt and pepper.  First dip the chicken in the egg whites making sure it is well coated. Then roll them over in the bread crumbs mixture making sure that the chicken breasts are fully covered in with the bread crumbs. If needed, the same procedure can be repeated again to ensure even coating. Arrange the chicken pieces on a baking pan and spray them evenly with any oil spray.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, turning them over once in between.
