This is a favorite around our house; it's quick, easy and tastes great! This is a recipe that I came up with; measurements can be varied depending on your taste, i.e. if you want more cheese add more cheese, if you want less use less, you really can't hurt it. And you really can't mess it up as long as you use this recipe as a foundation.

I use this chicken recipe for a lighter version of my Chicken Parmesan because I like the fact that you bake the chicken instead of pan-frying. The chicken is so moist tender and delicious! I use fresh grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and seasoned Italian bread crumbs. The last five minutes of baking I top the chicken with spaghetti sauce mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of additional Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Read More

This was OK. I added oregano red pepper flakes basil and garlic powder but still found it a little bland. The breading didn't crisp like I would have liked. One issue that wasn't the recipe's fault was the store bought tomato sauce was exttemly bland as well. Read More

I thought this recipe was extremely easy to make with an exceptional outcome. It looked like a fancy cook made it instead of me. I did make a few changes not in the basic recipe but added a spoonful of spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese to the top of the chicken pieces placed them back in the oven to melt the cheese. They turned out great!!! I served it with salad and a side of buttered/garlic noodles...and it is now the meal I take to friends. Very good. Read More

I make a Parmesan Chicken that is almost identical to this one that my family LOVES! I cut boneless skinless chicken breasts into 3-4 pieces and pound them out really thin salt & pepper them dredge in flour then beaten egg and then in the breadcrumb/parmesan mixture. Fry them up in 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil till golden brown! Don't over cook them or the meat gets really dry. If you do this one right the outside is very crispy & crunchy with a moist juicy tender inside. One of my families favorite summertime comfort foods hands down! Serve with a chilled creamy potato salad and corn on the cob YUM! The ultimate comfort food! Read More

This definitely is quick easy and delicious! Great recipe for a lighter version of a classic dish. I used Italian style bread crumbs and along with other ingredients I added some garlic. I topped this with a tomato cream sauce and some mozzarella cheese during the last five minutes and served with angel hair pasta! Perfect with a garden salad and warm bread! Read More

I liked this one a lot. Very simple yet delicious. I added onion and garlic powders to the breadcrumb mixture which kicked the yummy factor up a notch. Note however that even slight overbaking will cause the chicken to dry out a lot so stick to the 35 minutes. Read More

I made this for my boyfriend and his family and it was a hit!!! I mixed 2 tablespoons of chicken stock powder and 1 teaspoon of salt with the dry ingredients. It gave a little extra oomph to a what is a great easy and cheap meal. I fried up some beans red bell peppers and carrots for the side. Finding nice recipes like this is why i love allrecipes.com Read More

Good as is but even better with a few simple but important modifications. Rather than dipping the chicken in egg I dipped it in melted butter. Rather than "Italian seasoning" I used fresh parsley sage rosemary oregano and fresh minced garlic. Once coated in the crumb/cheese mixture I drizzled the chicken with some of the remaining melted butter. Rather than a 350 degree oven I baked them at 400 degrees 20-25 minutes depending on the size of the chicken breasts. Moist and juicy fork tender with incredible fresh herb flavor. Darned pretty too. I served this with linguine and "Red Bell Pepper Coulis" (which was excellent by the way) also from this site. Read More
