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!
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
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.
