4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast cutlets
1/2 cup whole-wheat panko
1 teaspoon garlic powder
4 medium zucchini
2 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, very thinly sliced
1/2 cup torn basil leaves, divided
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425°.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add thyme, 4 garlic cloves, and shallot; cook 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, wine, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper; cook 8 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half.
Combine yogurt and Parmesan; spread over both sides of cutlets. Combine panko and garlic powder. Dredge cutlets in panko mixture. Place cutlets on a wire rack coated with cooking spray. Place rack on a baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until done.
Using a julienne peeler, peel zucchini lengthwise into strips, stopping at the inside part containing the seeds; discard seeds.
Preheat broiler to high. Top each cutlet with 2 tablespoons sauce; top sauce evenly with mozzarella. Broil 2 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add remaining 2 garlic cloves; cook 1 minute. Add zucchini; cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Toss with remaining sauce, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and half of basil.
Arrange 3/4 cup zucchini noodles on each of 4 plates. Top each serving with 1 chicken portion; sprinkle servings evenly with remaining half of basil.

I was just looking for a new heath chicken recipe. This was a hit. I left out the shallots. My husband and I just eat the leftovers for lunch and it was just as good the next day. I will definitely make this again.
I made this for dinner tonight and it turned out perfect! Chicken was tender, and the sauce was delicious! The zucchini is such a healthy alternative to pasta...a spiralizer saves time. I'll definitely make this again.
