Parmesan Breaded Chicken

Sharing with your friends!

Time: 30 minutes

 I’ve been making this Parmesan breaded chicken for as long as I’ve lived on my own.  It’s basically Shake ‘n’ Bake, minus all of the MSG, sodium, and other chemicals.

Oh yea, I don’t use a bag but you could. 

If you’re into that sort of thing.

Parm Crusted Chicken

Basically I just combine Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, and some spices in a bowl, let my chicken roll around in it, then bake. 

Parm Crusted Chicken over Alfredo

I like to serve mine over fettuccine Alfredo, with homemade sauce, but you could just eat the chicken as is. It’s a perfect, simple, weeknight meal, that can be ready in 30 minutes.
