Here's a recipe that I got from an old friend. I vamped it up a little with the parmesan cheese and the lemon juice. Try it, you won't be disappointed!!
- 4 boneless chicken breasts
- 3⁄4 cup breadcrumbs
- 3⁄4 cup parmesan cheese
- 5 teaspoons dried parsley (or fresh chopped finely)
- 1 dash salt
- 1 dash pepper
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 cup of melted butter
- preheat your oven to 350.
- in a large bowl mix the breadcrumbs, parmesan, parsley, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
- dip the chicken breasts in the melted butter.
- dip the chicken in the breaded mix.
- brush lemon juice onto the tops of the chicken (you may not use all of the lemon juice).
- Place chicken on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for one hour.
This was very good and couldn't be more simple! I don't know why it hasn't been reviewed yet. I seasoned the bread crumbs with garlic powder, freshly grated parmesan, finely chopped Italian parsley, poultry seasoning, fresh ground pepper and lemon-infused salt. I also seasoned the melted butter, which I added a little EVOO to. I stuffed the breasts with crumbled bacon and Havarti cheese. They were delicious. Baked at 350 for about 45 minutes for 2 breasts weighing in at about 1.2 lbs. Thanks for a great and simple recipe. I won't bother browning breaded chicken in a skillet again before putting it in the oven to continue to cook through. No need to dirty extra pans! :-)
This was a huge hit for our house guests, and I will use it again as a company dish--tasty and easy to prepare, as well as attractive looking on a platter. I used ghee instead of butter to dip and pankow breadcrumbs to avoid all the chemicals in the usual store-bought breadcrumbs. I used four half boneless, skinless chicken breasts and had lots of breading left over. Seems like six halves would be about right for the amount of breading. I couldn't figure out how to brush lemon juice on the breaded meat, and finally just drizzed a bit all over. It does add a nice little hint of flavor. My guests asked for the recipe. Very good with rice pilaf and green beans!
This was very good and different from ordinary baked chicken. I do NOT like parmesan cheese, but I found these to be not too overbearing on the parmesan flavor. I forgot to put the lemon juice on the tips, will certainly try that next time. But it was yummy even without it.
