You can first cook the chicken in its coating. Then you're left with browned bits in the pan to make a delightful sauce with orange juice and Italian seasoning. Topped with orange segments for color, this moist, tasty meal is ready in about 30 minutes.—Soraida Angie Cannestra, Milwaukee, Wisconsin


  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • Hot cooked rice


  1. Place milk in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Dip chicken in milk, then coat with crumb mixture.
  2. In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°. Remove and keep warm.
  3. Add orange juice and remaining Italian seasoning to skillet, stirring to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil; cook until sauce is reduced to about 1/4 cup. Serve with chicken and rice.
