Fight It: Average Restaurant Chicken Parmesan

Delicious as it may be, restaurant Chicken Parmesan is a high-calorie, fat-filled mess of a meal. And since most plates of the stuff include an unnecessarily ginormous mountain of spaghetti, your disastrous dinner can easily exceed a thousand calories. HG's fiber-happy, homemade version is a super-satisfying swap for far fewer fat grams and calories. So the next time you go out for Italian food, skip the Parmesan and get your fill of the stuff at home instead. (Psssst: Ruby Tuesday's version of this dish has 1,654 calories and 96g of fat...Mamma Mia!)

Serving Size: 1 chicken breast (no pasta or sides)
Calories: 600
Fat: 25g
Sodium: 1,400mg
Carbs: 25g
Fiber: 1g
Sugars: 10g
Protein: 40g
