Prep 15 mins
Cook 35 mins
If you don't have panko just use dry breadcrumbs
- 4 boneless chicken breasts
- 1⁄2 cup melted butter (can use hard margarine)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs (can use regular dry breadcrumbs but the coating will not be as crispy)
- 1⁄3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder (can use more garlic powder)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning (do not use more than 1/2 teaspoon or the flavor will be too strong)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or adjust to taste)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Set oven rack to lowest position.
- Grease a small baking sheet.
- In a shallow bowl combine melted butter with 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder and (if using) 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard.
- In another bowl combine all breading ingredients (remove about half to another small bowl to add in as needed).
- Dip the breast into the melted butter turning a few times to coat generously, then coat in the breading mixture pressing down firmly with hands to adhere the coating to the breast (you may need to turn the chicken breast a few time to coat well).
- Place on baking sheet.
- Continue with remaining chicken adding in more breading to the bowl as needed to coat the chicken.
- Bake for about 35-40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
I made this recipe for dinner last night and the whole family loved it and asked me to make this again!! I used seasoned panko crumbs and added the italian seasoning as well. The chicken was moist and crunchy and the dijon added some extra zest that was enjoyed by everyone....even my non-mustard eaters! Thanks for the great recipe Kittencal!!
Very good. I finished the chicken off under the broiler to brown the top.
Kittencal...you have done it again! This is why you are my favorite chef! This was yet another quick and tasty recipe my family adored! Thank you for sharing such a gem!!! xoxo LA :-)
