DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Butter an 11 x 7-inch or a 9-inch baking pan baking dish (if doubling the recipe to make 12 breasts, use a 13 x 9-inch pan.
  • In a bowl, combine the dry breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, parsley, salt and pepper.
  • In another bowl combine the melted butter/garlic mixture and lemon juice; whisk well to combine (if you run out of butter when dipping the breasts, which has happened to me many times, just melt about another 1/4 cup butter and add in about 1 tablespoon more of lemon juice in the microwave.
  • Dip chicken in butter mixture, then roll in crumbs (patting down the crumbs into the chicken breasts).
  • Roll-up chicken jelly-roll style; place seam side down in a greased baking dish drizzle with any remaining butter mixture; sprinkle with paprika if desired.
  • Place a slice of cheese on top the last 10 minutes of baking if desired.
  • Bake uncovered for 35-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked though (baking time will vary depending on how thin you pounded the chicken).
