Oven-fried Chicken Parmesan



I’m a big fan of fried chicken but it takes a while to fry and leaves me with a greasy mess in the kitchen.  The next best thing is oven-fried chicken.

It probably wasn’t a “pretty” dish setting on our dinner table but it made up for it in good taste.  I’m not saying this is as delicious as deep-fried chicken but it’s healthier and was really moist and delicious.  The breading makes the chicken juicy on the inside and crisp on the outside.  And it’s not greasy!

If there is any leftover, it’s great the next day cut up in a salad!  

Oven-fried Chicken Parmesan

Ingredients:

¾ cup breadcrumbs
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
¾ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon pepper
4 boneless chicken breasts, skin removed
1/3 cup butter, melted

Method:

Combine first 5 ingredients.
Dip chicken in melted butter.
Dredge in breadcrumb mixture.
Place in a greased baking dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until tender. 

ENJOY!

  23. I love oven fried chicken - yours looks perfectly delicious!

  24. The last time I had oven-fried chicken I was shocked at how closely it resembled real fried chicken! This looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  25. How funny; I fixed almost the same recipe using chicken strips a couple of days ago. Instead of dipping the chicken in melted butter, I dipped it in buttermilk. Great minds think a like. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love fried chicken so much! I find it a little easier to make since I got a deep fryer, but even with the deep fryer you have to be careful about burning. That is one of the biggest advantages to the oven-fry method. There is less worry about burning and you can coat with ingredients that would burn way too quickly in hot oil.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love fried chicken as well but due to healthy reasons and diet I prefer the oven baked! This one looks so crispy!

  28. Oven fried chicken is delicious, especially with the Parmesan cheese! Yours looks so good!

  30. I'm a big fan of fried chicken. Yum! This looks somewhat similar to a recipe I found on the back of a saltines box once (you basically pulverized the saltines and used those in place of the bread crumbs, which made for a salty chicken.)

  31. I love fried chicken, but I agree it is not easy or really fun to make. Your healthier version looks yummy:)

  32. Hi Pam. This looks tasty. I love fried chicken, but I hate the mess and all the calories. This looks far better. Thank you for sharing with me tonight. After such a difficult week, it has been so refreshing to return to the blogs (and bloggers) that I love. I hope you have a blessed Sunday, sweet girl!

  33. Now, I want chicken. Looks so yummy.

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

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




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.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 



The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…



You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”



Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.


Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!


A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
