I've Been Holding Out So Long, Lord I Miss You

Tonight I raced home with the notion of a super light Chicken Parmesan in my head.  Yes, I'm off the cheese and that made it all the more challenging to cook this dish.  I would rely on the rich tomato sauce scented with fresh herbs to carry the weight.  The slight amount of cheese at the end would be mainly for visual satisfaction.  While the onions and garlic were sauteing, I seasoned and lightly coated my chicken breasts with flax seed flour and Italian herbs.
I cooked those in the pan until golden brown and then side aside.  To the onions and garlic I added a can of tomato sauce and fresh basil and oregano, hot pepper flakes and onion powder.  I let that thicken before adding my chicken breasts with just a tablespoon of Parmesan, covered that to let the cheese melt and it was a done deal!

I love broccoli rabe with lemon and garlic oil.  A perfect pairing!
I didn't miss the breading and I didn't miss the mozzarella...That bit of good Parmesan just on top gave me everything I needed.
