This dish was a great hit with my family. Even my 2-year-old loved it and he's a very picky eater. The lemon in this chicken dish gives it a great zing. Serve with rice pilaf and steamed garlic green beans and you've got a delicious meal.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.

  • Place chicken breasts on a flat work surface. Slice horizontally through the thickest part of the breasts, being careful not to cut all the way through to the other side. Open the 2 sides and spread them out like an open book.

  • Combine butter, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish.

  • Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and basil in another dish.

  • Dip chicken in butter mixture, then coat in Parmesan-crumb mixture. Place into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken breasts are no longer pink and juices run clear, 25 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a breast should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

The flavour was wonderful and the chicken moist! I made it as outlined except for the bread crumbs (used Italian-style crumbs since it was all that was on hand). The only quibble I have is the chicken didn't brown as much as I would have liked. Next time I will (as another already noted) broil for a minute or two at the end. On the whole, the recipe was easy to follow, quick to throw together, and the results yummy! Bet the left-overs will be good in a sandwich! I served it with fried rice (peas, carrots and garlic added for flavour). Read More

This was very good but I cooked them too long-25 minutes plus a couple minutes under the broiler-the chicken was a little dry. Read More

Only substitutions were Italian bread crumbs instead of plain and Italian seasoning instead of Basil and Parsley, because that is what I had on hand. Also I had 3 large breasts giving me 6 halves, so I had to use a 13x9 dish and a 9x9 dish. Also added a little bit more for my wet dip ingredients. Came out great, very moist and able to cut with a fork. Flavor was spot on. Read More

It was a bit on the fatty side for me. Very tasty but doesn't seem the least bit healthy. Read More

Step aside shake and bake! This is one flavorful and crunchy chicken! I used seasoned bread crumbs, since they are what I had on hand. I broiled them at the end. I started with chicken breasts and sliced them in half. They went rather far and I used leftovers on top of spaghetti noodles and marinara sauce! Read More

Loved the flavor, and the chicken was very moist! Next time I will shorten the baking time, and switch to broil at the end. Hopefully that will make the bread crumbs a little crispier, as they were a bit soggy. Read More
