Parmesan Chicken Recipe

Parmesan Chicken Recipe

The savory coating on this chicken has the satisfying flavor of Parmesan cheese. It's easy enough to be a family weekday meal yet impressive enough to serve to guests. When I make this chicken for dinner, we never have leftovers. -Schelby Thompson, Camden Wyoming, Delaware
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (7 ounces each)

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a shallow bowl, combine butter, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and salt. Place bread crumbs and cheese in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken in butter mixture, then in bread crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
  • 2. Place in an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Drizzle with any remaining butter mixture. Bake, uncovered, 25-30 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170°. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"The coating never did crisp up until I turned the oven up to 425. I also used Italian bread crumbs which have a bit more flavor. As for salt we've cut back on that for quite a while so it wasn't an issue. The breading stuck better than many recipes I've used. Pleased with the results over all."

"I've been making something very similar to this for nearly 30 years (I copied my recipe out of a cookbook put out by my college roommate's synagogue). My version calls for a minced clove of garlic to be added to the butter/Dijon/Worcestershire mixture, and for a generous shake of parsley flakes in the breading mixture. I do like the proportions of breadcrumbs to Parmesan in this version better, though!"
