Dried oregano

2 tsp

Garlic powder

½ tsp

Onion powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Combine oats, 1 teaspoon of oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper together in a shallow dish. Add chicken to oat mixture and turn to coat both sides, pressing oat mixture onto chicken. Place chicken on prepared baking sheet and lightly coat surface with cooking spray; bake 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine tomato sauce, tomato and remaining oregano. Set pan over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Simmer 10 minutes; remove from heat and stir in basil.
  4. Remove chicken from oven (keeping oven at 400ºF) and top each chicken breast with 1/4 cup of sauce and 1/4 cup (1 ounce) of cheese. Return pan to oven and bake until cheese is melted and golden, about 7 to 10 minutes more. Yields 1 piece per serving.
