Reviews for Parmesan-Crusted Chicken
"I'm unemployed and broke. I had no breadcrumbs.This is an awesome dish for what I had in the kitchen.Is so good!!!!I made the chicken and also boiled some noodles.Put the noodles and sauce in a baking pan and then added the chicken after I fried it.I love it !!! And will still make it when I find a job."
"This was good. I ended up adding extra seasoning. I just baked the chicken and all the crust stayed on. I will make again."
"All the complaints about the coating sticking to frying pan, use a non stick frying pan and you won't have a problem."
"I've made a very similar chicken dish like this before, with a few differences.. a little cayenne pepper & onion powder to the flour mixture...then I never fry it! Bake at 400 for 30 minutes and mmmm....mmmmm...it's golden brown and tastes like it's fried! I make a lemon butter sauce with tarragon to drizzle over and serve with lemon butter asparagus."
"Okay, I worked in commercial kitchens for six years and while I am not the most creative ad libbing in the kitchen, I have solid fundamental skills. I thawed some chicken and prepared to make this for my girlfriend and I. We had other options, but this recipe sounded great.Followed the recipe to a tee and like a couple others, all of the Parmesan goodness hardened to a crusty mess at the bottom of my all clad sautée pan. No crust left whatsoever. Seeing as I had just detailed the kitchen the day previous, I was livid. Perhaps the recipe really calls for the powdered Parmesan cheese topping, I grated my own cheese and made a mess. The chicken, of course, was then bland coming out of the baking dish. I dumped some canned tomato sauce on top and ate my angry feelings. Be forewarned!"
"I added 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning to the flour mixture, for more flavor. However, I've never made such a messy dish as this one. All of the cheese stuck to the pan instead of the chicken. I won't make this dish again."
"The cheese stuck to the pan instead of the chicken! But nevertheless--it was still pretty tasty and easy!"
"This was simple to put together. The chicken had great flavore and was very tender. This is a recipe I will be using often! Thank you!"
"Quick, easy and tasty. Great with buttered noodles and green bean almondine!"
"I did half grated parmesan, half shredded. Pretty tasty, though it needed more spice."
"This recipe is easy to make and tastes very good! I have made it a couple of times now and it is getting added to my recipe book as a regular. With a little more Parmesan cheese it will easily make 4 pieces of chicken."
"Super easy and quick. I also used grated parmesan and it turned out great. Very flavorful!"
"As a single guy, I'm always looking for quick and easy meals. This is a breeze to make and very tasty. Only changes I made were to mix some plain bread crumbs in with the flour, and added a little thyme. Didn't have shredded parm so I used grated instead-but next time I'll use shredded. Will definitely be making this often- thanks for sharing."
"This recipe is a keeper! I was looking for a simple Sunday night meal and this fit the description perfectly. The cooking time did need to be increased by at least five minutes. I would highly recommend serving this chicken with mashed potatoes :)"
"I made this recipe tonight after searching for recipe that did NOT involve bread crumps because I didn't feel like going out to the store. This was really good and it was light verses the heavy breadings of the some of the recipes that I have tried before. I did use some oregano and parsley mixed in with the flour mixture and seasoned my chicken with a little sea salt. I will certainly make this recipe again."
"Good recipe. We made it for 4 people, and the baking time could probably be a bit longer. We baked it for an extra 5 minutes, and maybe even longer than that. It probably depends on your oven, but just thought I'd mention our experience. Other than that, I thought that this was pretty good!"
"This is a great way to change up chicken cutlets. I thoroughly enjoyed them as did my husband. This went great with the Parmesan Noodle side dish."
"This is one of our very favorite dinners and we have it at least several times a month. So easy and so delicious. I highly recommend this recipe."
"I make this for my husband and me quite often. It is very tasty and the chicken stays juicy and tender on the inside. Could easily increase this to serve 4."
