  2. This sounds great I am wondering if I can adapt it to use my eggplants from my garden. We planted them before I started losing weight and before I added up the calories in my homemade eggplant parmesan.

  3. I just saved this recipe, and the chicken saved as ( 8 oz. of chicken breast) which should actually be 24 oz. if your using 3 breasts… just thought I should let you know, the calorie count comes out to 244 calories per serving, not 163.

  4. I ran this through MFP recipe calculator using the same amount of protein, bread crumbs, butter, and oil, but used 8 tbsp (4 oz) mozzarella, 1 cup marinara (store bought), panko (store bought, 50 cals per 1/4 cup instead of 120 for whole wheat). The lowest count I got for servings was 261 cals, 12g fat, 10g total carbs, 2g fiber, 34g protein.

    If I am using less ingredients, why are the calorie counts one and a half times higher?

    1. This recipe loads into MFP as 8oz TOTAL chicken divided by 6 servings. Once you bump up the chicken to the correct total ounces the calories will go up to the correct amount also.

  5. If 1 tbsp olive oil is 120 calories, why is 1 serving only 163 calories? You have to add the calories of oils when you cook.
