Crumbed Parmesan Chicken Breasts

    35 minutes

    This is a favourite in our house. It's so easy but tastes so good. Using Parmesan gives a little more texture to crumbed chicken and the baking makes it healthy for all the family.

    Something else. I added cayenne pepper, cumin, ground coriander, paprika, sugar, salt, corn flour and cardamon to the crumb mix. I also mixed the egg with a little milk. I basically combined this recipe with spices from a southern fried chicken recipe. I used this chicken to make lunch salad wraps, really yummy and great texture.  -  12 Nov 2008


    Used different ingredients. I added fresh basil, coriander and green peppercorns to the whole grain bread crumbs I used. Then instead of a sprinkling of mozzarella I used provolone. Honey said it was the best parm ever! Really great easy recipe without the deep fry makes this an A+  -  13 Jun 2011


    Something else. 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 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 family's favourite summertime comfort foods, hands down! The ultimate comfort food!  -  08 Oct 2008
