You won’t be hungry for long. The best part is, a lot of the simplest recipes are kid friendly. It won’t be long before you’re cooking with the best of them

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken Ingredients – serves four

  • 1lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 clove garlic minced (yes, you can use the garlic in water if you really want to)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs (If you’re a novice, go ahead and get the Italian crumbs and skip the rest of the seasoning in the recipe)
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • salt/pepper to taste (estimate 1/4 tsp or so)
  • marinara sauce (or a jar of spaghetti sauce)
  • pasta of your choice (prepare according to directions)
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken Instructions

First, take out all of your pent up aggression on your chicken breasts. Before pounding them, I do recommend covering with wax paper and setting your cutting board on a towel or two to absorb some of the shock. This part is kind of fun, I use a rolling pin, but a mallet would do. Pound the chicken until it’s about 1/2″ thick. Cut the breasts in half.

Preheat your oven to 350˚.

Melt the 1/4 cup butter over low heat and add the garlic.

In a shallow dish thoroughly mix your breadcrumbs, grated parmesan, and seasoning. Dip your chicken, one piece at a time, into the melted butter then into the breadcrumbs, making sure you coat each piece. Arrange on a foil lined baking sheet.

Bake for 30 minutes. While the chicken is baking, heat the marinara sauce and pasta. Check the temperature with a meat thermometer, it should be 170˚-175˚.

Spoon marinara over each breast and sprinkle with grated mozzarella. Return the sheet to the oven until the cheese has melted.

 

Serve and enjoy.

  2. This sounds MUCH easier than the long version which usually includes me screaming expletives because I’ve just been burned!
