It's time to lighten up the classic chicken Parmesan. There is no reason it has to be laden with fat and oil. This dish combines grilled chicken, less cheese and, instead of pasta, we used spaghetti squash.
Happy New Year! Are you full from all those cookies and cakes from the holiday season? Today we are taking it down a notch and making this simple classic dish a little healthier. This chicken Parmesan is grilled instead of breaded and fried, and we decided to use spaghetti squash instead of traditional pasta. It's still flavorful and delicious but perfect for the waistline.

Not sure how to prepare spaghetti squash? Cut squash in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds, rub with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake cut side up for 35-40 minutes (depending on size) at 375 degrees F till the squash skin starts to look a little brown on the edges and the flesh "strings" when a fork is run across the top.
