This is a wonderful, easy to make recipe that my mother often serves for special occasions! I always enjoyed having it for my birthday and it is one of my favorite meals! It is also delicious warmed over the next day – so make plenty for leftovers! You can add smoked paprika to the recipe to add a little smoky flavor. Let me know if you experiment with the ingredients and how it turns out. It is versatile as it pairs well with many side dishes and vegetables. I like to serve it with Moms Easy to Make Yams. I hope you enjoy it as it is good eats!
1 ½ pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts cut in half
½ cup Parmesan Romano grated cheese
¼ cup flour
½ tsp salt
Paprika (for color)
Smoked Paprika, optional
1 tbsp Milk
¼ cup Melted butter
Use a separate fork to take the chicken out of egg mixture. Keep the breading in a separate bowl. If you do not use all the breading, you can save it as long as it did not touch the raw chicken. I like to use a pastry brush that is dishwasher safe to sterilize it after touching the chicken.
Spray a 9 by 13 glass pan with no-fat cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Have three separate containers for your egg wash, breading, and to coat your chicken. Place a piece of chicken in the egg mixture. Remove using a fork shaking off excess egg mixture. Place in a clean bowl to coat your chicken. Spoon breading over the chicken. Do not allow the spoon to touch the chicken. Use another fork to turn over chicken and add more breading to ensure both sides are coated. Then place in the glass pan. Evenly coat each piece of chicken and place in the glass pan. Using a pastry brush, evenly distribute the melted butter over each piece of chicken. Bake 30 – 45 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Serve with your favorite side dish and enjoy!!
