    FlemishMinx's Note:

    There are tons of chicken parmesan recipes on 'zaar but this one is different: no tomatoes or marinara sauce. Instead, the parmesan is complemented by the freshness of lemon zest and juice. I strongly recommend using PANKO breadcrumbs if you can, they will stay crunchy after the baking. If your chicken breasts are on the large side, or you simply want more of the parmesan flavor, you can double the topping mixture portion of the recipe. PLEASE NOTE the handy 'zaar feature for converting metric to US equivalents ;)

      This recipe was easy, quick, and delicious! I used chicken tenders, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. DH loves spicy, so next time I might use a little cayenne pepper instead of the black pepper, or add some minced hot peppers from the garden. Thanks for sharing your recipe, FlemishMinx.

      These were wonderful! I accidentally squeezed the lemon juice into the mix with the breading mix and didn't have any parsley on hand but it still turned out great. My husband really enjoyed it as well. I will definitely be making these again!
