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!

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

  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!

  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.

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

  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!
