Chicken Parmesan, anyone? Whenever we're out at a fancy restaurant and see a Parmesan chicken recipe on the menu, it always catches our eye. It's the kind of chicken dinner that's reliably tasty. If you're looking for a chicken dinner recipe that'll wow your family and friends, then our recipe for Parmesan-Baked Chicken Breasts will certainly put smiles on their faces.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/3 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs (store-bought)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup fire-roasted tomato-and-garlic pasta sauce, warmed
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Heat a large baking sheet in oven for 5 minutes.

  2. Combine first 3 ingredients in a shallow dish.

  3. Place garlic and olive oil in a small microwave-safe glass bowl, and microwave at HIGH 30 seconds or until warm and fragrant.

  4. Dip chicken in garlic oil; dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Coat preheated baking sheet with cooking spray, and place chicken on baking sheet. Coat chicken with cooking spray. Bake 25 minutes or until golden and done. Serve with pasta sauce.

  • Preheating the baking sheet before baking the chicken makes the Parmesan coating especially crispy. Also, briefly heating the garlic in olive oil intensifies the garlic's flavor.
  • This recipe would go great with a side of Lyonnaise Potatoes!
  • Start off dinner with our Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing.

Again, my question is: what is your definition of soon? (I.e. a picture of the Parmesan Baked Chicken Breasts. Why can't pictures be posted with the recipe?)

We try our best to get photos up for every recipe but unfortunately we can't give a timetable for when this particular recipe will have a photo. Our Test Kitchen is always hard at work!
