Chicken Zucchini Marinara

Here's another delicious recipe for you, coming from our dinner tonight!  You can find the original recipe here.
And here's the way I did it.

1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
4 chicken breasts
2 cups tomato and basil spaghetti sauce (most jars are 2 1/2 cups, so just use it all)
2 cups zucchini - thinly sliced
4 oz mozzarella
2 egg whites
Side note: We do all of our shopping at Aldi's.  I don't know if you have one around you or not, but they're super cheap and the food is just as great.  They've really made improvements from when I was little.  Their produce is fresh and the meat is delicious.  Mr. T and I can usually get away with spending about $60 for 2 1/2 weeks worth of groceries.

Mix the bread crumbs and half of the grated parmesan.
 Coat the chicken breasts in the egg whites.  Then coat both sides with the bread crumbs/cheese mixture.
Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat until hot.
Brown the chicken on each side.
 Pour half to 3/4 of the sauce over the chicken.
Arrange the zucchini slices over the chicken.  Sprinkle with the mozzarella and the rest of the parmesan.
Top with the remaining sauce.
Cover.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer for 25 minutes.

All done!  Makes four servings.
Mr. T's plate.  He gets pasta, I don't.  And a freaking huge piece of chicken.
There's my little chicken, with a nice side salad.  Don't let the size fool you, I was stuffed!
