What You Need

cups  whole wheat rotini pasta
 RITZ Reduced Fat Crackers, crushed (about 1/2 cup crumbs)
Tbsp.  KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese
tsp.  dried oregano leaves
 egg white
small  boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 lb.)
cups  tomato-basil spaghetti sauce, divided
cup  KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Make It

COOK pasta in large saucepan as directed on package. Meanwhile, combine cracker crumbs, Parmesan cheese and oregano in pie plate. Lightly beat egg white in separate pie plate. Dip chicken in egg white, then roll in crumb mixture until evenly coated. Set aside.

SPRAY large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat on medium heat. Add chicken; cook 5 min. on each side or until cooked through (165ºF). Spoon 1 cup of the spaghetti sauce over chicken; top with mozzarella cheese. Cover skillet with lid. Reduce heat to low; simmer 3 min. or until sauce is hot and cheese is melted.

MEANWHILE, drain pasta; return to pan. Add remaining 1 cup spaghetti sauce; toss to coat. Cook on medium heat 2 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Spoon onto serving plates; top with the chicken.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Makeover - How We Did It
We coated a hot skillet with cooking spray and cooked the chicken until crisp instead of frying it in oil like traditional recipes. This small change plus using reduced fat mozzarella cheese will save you 100 calories and 13 grams of fat, including 2.5 grams of saturated fat, per serving.
