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


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).

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
