Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts




Are you in the mood for chicken tonight?  If you are, here’s a great recipe!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 

This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.





Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breast
Ingredients:

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
½ tablespoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼-½ teaspoon seasoned pepper
¼ cup Wishbone Robusto Italian Salad Dressing
4 teaspoons butter

Method:

Wash chicken, pat dry.
Combine cheese, bread crumbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper on a plate.
Dip chicken into eggs.
Dredge chicken with crumb mixture.
Place on greased baking sheet.
Drizzle with salad dressing.
Place pat of butter on each chicken breast.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.



ENJOY!!!

I am always in the mood for chicken. My husband makes fun of me saying that I will cluck like a chicken eventually. Parmesan and chicken great combination.

Have made a note of this to cook for myself tomorrow. I might also try it using fish as well. Diane

TKW said...

Oh my gosh...my kids might actually EAT this. Thanks for the recipe.

StephenC said...

I'm not likely to buy a bottle of Italian dressing. Would some Italian herbs steeped in olive oil and drizzled on be worth a try?

We love chicken in my house and have it at least twice a week. I just grilled some breasts last night on my new Lodge oven top grill and loved the taste! Your recipe looks delicious and will have to try it:)

Sheila said...

Wow--that looks really good. We have either chicken or turkey most days at our house. I love finding new recipes. I'd make it tonight if my chicken was thawed. Thanks for the recipe.

Kristin said...

What a great mix of flavors. This sounds really good.

Clements Family said...

Ok that seriously looks amazing. I must make this soon!

Joanne said...

These babies put my mom's chicken cutlets to shame. So much flavor!

JG said...

Chicken is served at dinnertime very often, here. :) Combining it with Parmesan Cheese + baking is the best. Yummy!

Pam: Your name reminds me of the cooking spray! Know where that name came from???

Stands for "Product of Arthur Meyerhoff," the guy who invented it! There's your trivia for the day.

Linda, thanks! Nothing like chicken any time of the day!

Gloria, thanks so much!

Katerina, a little clucking makes life interesting!

Diane, great idea! I'm sure it would be good on fish also!

TKW, good that kids usually like chicken and you have a good day!

StephenC, I'm usually not big on Italian dressing, until I tried Robusto. Your Italian herbs would be incredible, I'm sure!

The Wife of a Dairyman, that new grill sounds great and I'll have to send my chicken over your way to try it!

Sheila, we eat a lot of chicken also and Bill wishes we would eat a lot more turkey.

Kristin, thanks so much!

Clements Family, thanks! Hope you like it!

Joanne, yum! I love those chicken cutlets and will be trying it.

JG, I agree! Love parmesan on chicken.

Nick, I didn't know that. Thanks for the interesting bit of trivia! Here's one for you: Pam is a Greek name meaning "all honey."

The Daily Smash, thank you and I will!

Pam said...

Rita, cool! Then you know exactly how delicious it is!

Pegasuslegend said...

love baking chicken with breading never tried the seasoning mix what a great idea!

musingegret said...

Sounds yummy; love your site. I bet you served a mesclun salad though since mescaline is a psychedelic hallucinogen derived from peyote cacti. ;-)

So I've just started eating chicken again (putting my vegetarianism on hold for a bit) and this recipe looks like a perfect dinner meal. I would love to serve this with a fresh loaf of Italian bread. Yum!

AlisonArtisan said...

I make my own Italian dressing so if you don't have the store bought kind it's still easy to whip it up. Oil, vinegar, and Italian herbs. Allrecipes.com has a great recipe for it.
