Baked Chicken Parmesan: 4 Weight Watchers Points!

  • Author: Marie Bostwick


  • ½ Panko style cup bread crumbs – 8 points
  • 1 oz grated Parmesan cheese – 4 points
  • 1 oz shaved Parmesan cheese – 4 points
  • ½ t dried Italian seasoning – 0 points
  • 1 egg – 0 points
  • 20 oz chicken breast tenderloins – 0 points
  • 2 cups tomato sauce – 0 points (check points on jar or can)
  • 4 oz whole wheat spaghetti, uncooked – 0 points (only on WW PURPLE. If you’re on WW Green on Blue, pasta is 12 points)
  • Cooking spray – 0 points


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking pan with foil and set aside.
  2. In a shallow pan on plate, mix breadcrumbs, 1 oz grated parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and a dash of salt. Panko Parmesan
  3. In a separate dish, whisk egg with a tablespoon of water and a dash of salt to create an egg wash.
  4. Dip chicken tenderloins in egg wash, then dredge in breadcrumb mixture. You may need to gently press crumbs onto the chicken to get them to stick.
  5. Spray the foil covered baking pan with cooking spray.  Place prepared chicken tenderloins on pan. Spray top of tenderloins lightly with cooking spray before placing in the preheated oven. Panko Crusted Chicken
  6. Cook prepared tenderloins for 20 minutes total, removing pan after first ten minutes and flipping chicken to other side.
  7. While the chicken is cooking, fill a pot with salted water and place on stove at high heat.  When water is boiling, cook spaghetti according to package instructions.  At the same time, in a separate pan, heat the tomato sauce.
  8. When pasta is cooked, divide onto plates. Pour sauce over the pasta, top with chicken parmesan tenderloins. Sprinkle 1 oz of shaved cheese over the top (Grated cheese works too. I just like the look of the shaved variety).
  9. Serve immediately.
