TUESDAY, Oct. 22, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Love your chicken parm but not the crazy calorie overload you get at a restaurant? Try this lighter version that's easy to make at home.

Both bring down the nutrition profile since the breading is made from white-flour breadcrumbs and the side is usually white pasta. So skip the breading and replace the pasta with a veggie side dish to save hundreds of calories without sacrificing taste.
