"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!"
"excellent! I didn'r bother with the parsley but followed the recipe apart from that - it was quick, simple and tasty. Will have again as hubby loved it! Thanks"
"Really great dish! I did bread the top and bottom of the chicken and increased the parmesan and panko breadcrumbs. The flavor was wonderful. Full of lemon flavor. I forgot the parley but didn't miss it. Wonderful. Will definitely make again and again!"
"I loved the taste of the lemony bread crumb mixture. I also dredged the bottom of my chicken in the crumbs to coat both sides."
"I doubled the bread crumb mixture and it was fabulous....we really enjoyed it..."
"The most delicious recipe ever! The chicken was so moist, and the flavor was incredible. It is also the easiest meal to make. This will be a family tradition in our house for years to come!"
"The fam really liked the chicken. I didn't have panko, but normal breadcrumbs were okay. I think next time, I'll marinate the chicken in something lemon peppery for a while first. The lemon in the crumb coating doesn't overwhelm, so a taste in the meat itself might go over pretty well."
"This is a very easy and delicious recipe! The chicken breasts turned out very moist and tender. I think I will be cooking mine this way from now on! Thanks!"
"This was not only easy but delicious. I confess I didn't read the recipe properly and added the lemon juice to the crumbs, but that made no difference. The crumbs were still cruncy with a lovely lemon flavour. I did add more lemon juice at the end with no adverse effect. I also added garlic with the crumbs for an extra flavour. The chicken was very tender and moist and we both enjoyed it very much. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Only used two chicken breasts, but the normal amount of other ingredients and it worked out fine to coat both sides of the chicken. I did substitute garlic for the onion, just a preference. Nice light tasting dish. The Panko crumbs are wonderful and add a special crispiness to the dish. Thanks for another good one, FM."
"Very Easy - Next time I think I will make more of the mixture and coat the whole breast. Family really enjoyed"
"Delicious,chicken crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. This recipe is diffently a Keeper, so easy to make,yet so yummy. I used Panko as suggested also dipped the chicken into the mixture to coat the underside of the breast before putting it into the baking dish, then put the rest on the top. We loved the lemon flavor, DH even squeezed a little extra lemon on his serving. Thank you Minx for another delicious recipe. "
