Crispy Parmesan Chicken Breasts

Posted on: March 15, 2010

This recipe is so simple and has become another favorite of ours.  It’s a meal that can be prepared in as much as 30 minutes.   I sometimes enjoy this with marinara sauce, as it’s breaded, like Chicken Parmesan.  I will typically make the marinara sauce on the side as Mike is not a big “sauce” fan.   I know that you will enjoy this as much as we do!


2-6 chicken breasts (determine # of chicken breasts that are needed)

1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese – grated

1/3 Cup dry bread crumbs (I use Italian)

1/4 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

3 Tbsp melted butter.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Melt butter in microwave and place in rimmed dish.  Mix cheese, bread crumbs and seasonings in shallow dish.  (I use glass pie pans for the butter and dry mix)

Put chicken in butter and coat both sides.  Then, put chicken in the cheese mixture coating again on both sides.  Place in greased baking dish.

Bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is tender.

**COOKS NOTES:  This is so easy to make.  I typically use 2-3 breasts for 2 of us.  I also use a bit more than the amounts listed depending on how much cheese/bread crumbs and paprika you like.  When there is about 3-5 minutes left, I take the chicken out and put fresh grated parmesan cheese over the chicken to make cheese crisps.  I typically serve with a salad, or green beans – but any veggie combination will work.   It’s really moist and delicious**

Bon Appetit!
