Breaded Chicken Breasts

A friend and I created this breaded chicken, and it's been a hit with my family ever since. We love the chicken's light lemon flavor and the moist breading. —Karin Bailey, Golden, Colorado

    I will make this again. The only changes I made were that I substituted a herb de Florence (rosemary, savoury) for the Parsley, and I rolled a cooked slice of bacon and a dab of cream cheese into each chicken breast. Also, the chicken breasts were quite thick even though I pounded them so they took one hour to roast at 350. For a complete meal I added halved baby potatoes around the chicken breasts in the roaster, and I also roasted cobs of corn in the oven beside the roaster (they were wrapped in foil with a pat of butter). I added a tossed salad and it was a lovely meal for our guests.

    This was really easy, really tasty, and I made it with ingredients I already had around the house! I used seasoned bread crumbs because they have the parsley in them and otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Next time I might actually increase the lemon juice by a touch. I bet this would be just as good with a white fish or even pork chops! Definitely a keeper for me.

    I have a similar recipe using breadcrumbs and Italian dressing. This was a nice change for our family and I will certainly make it again. Simple and delicious - and ingredients you have on hand - perfect for a week night meal!

    Nice and moist. However, I realized after I cooked them, I'd forgotten the paprika! Also, next time, I would use less lemon juice; just a bit too tangy for our taste.
