Take out your Chicken Breast, trim the fat off of them, and then cut them in half (so that they are thin). In one smaller bowl add in your Egg Whites and Olive Oil. Mix those together. In another large bowl add in your Bread Crumbs and Parmesan Cheese. Mix those together. Take out a baking sheet, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and then put your Chicken Breast onto your baking sheet. Lightly brush your wet mix onto both sides of your Chicken Breast slices and then dunk them into your dry mix. Coat the top of your Chicken Breast with some non-stick cooking spray and then put them into the oven on 450°F/232°C for 20:00. After 20:00 take them out, flip them over, and then evenly distribute your Pasta Sauce + Mozzarella Cheese over the top of them. Put them back into the oven on 450°F/232°C for another 5:00-10:00 (or until your cheese is melted). Mouthgasm!
