Parmesan Crumbed Chicken

"An ever so easy chicken recipe that is quick and tasty to whip up after a busy day when you don't feel like spending ages in the kitchen doing preparation. Just crumb the chicken, then relax with a nice glass of white wine before cooking. Goes really well with new potatoes, rice or couscous.and a salad. Enjoy! NB: I have posted this recipe as it was printed in the Feb 09 edition of "Recipe+" but my chicken breasts were very thick so I cut them thinly so they were more like schnitzels."

  • Using a sharp knife, cut chicken horizontally, not all the way through. Open out and flatten with hands. Using a meat mallet or rolling pin gently pound chicken between sheets of baking paper to 1cm thick.
  • Combine breadcrumbs, parmesan and parlsey on a plate. Place yoghurt in a medium bowl. Dip chicken into yoghurt, then coat in crumbs, place on a plate, cover with food wrap and chill for 15 minutes.
  • Heat oil over a moderate heat. Cook chicken , turning once and transfer to another plate. Rest 5 minutes before serving.

  1. We love breaded boneless, skinless chicken breasts and this recipe was a success! I particularly liked the fresh parsley addition. The yogurt helped to keep the chicken moist and tender, while the breadcrumb coating provided the crunch. Lovely! Made for the Aussie/NZ swap. Thank you!
  2. What a great chicken recipe. Followed the recipe, except I baked my chicken at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  3. Me and My Hubby Justin made some and we were in Wyoming so it was GOOD!
  4. *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #63* I made this according to directions, using thin chicken tenders and Greek yogurt -- which is usually creamier than regular. It was done in about 10 minutes, but the coating entirely slipped off when I turned them over. Mild taste, but I did salt and pepper lightly. I do bake chicken frequently and will try this coating next time in the oven. Thanks for posting, Kathy.
  5. This was very easy to make, I made my own fresh bread crumbs. I don't think I dry the crumbs enough (had semi dried) and the crumble came off very easy while cooking (that was my own fault) The flavour was great and will make this again. Thanks so much for posting the recipe Kiwi Kathy


  1. Soooooo good and very flavorful. I used chicken tenders instead of chicken breasts. The yoghurt kept the chicken really moist. Very quick and easy. I will be making these often. Made for Aug. 2010 Aus/NZ Swap.
