We made this baked chicken even better by adding an Asiago cheese crust! Asiago Crusted Chicken is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. We love how the Asiago cheese adds a sweet and nutty flavor that complements the homemade mushroom and tomato sauce just perfectly. This one is so good, it tastes like something you might order at a nice restaurant!  

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, slightly pounded
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 pound sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine bread crumbs, Asiago cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix well. In another shallow dish, beat egg.
  3. Dip chicken in egg, then in bread crumb mixture, coating completely. Place on prepared baking sheet;lightly spray with cooking spray.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until no longer pink in center.
  5. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; add mushrooms, tomatoes, garlic powder, and remaining salt and pepper. Cook 10 to 12 minutes, or until tomatoes have broken down and formed a sauce. Serve over chicken.

Just a Suggestion!

  • How about starting your meal with a bowl of piping hot soup? Serve up our Pasta e Fagioli, but instead of Parmesan, try sprinkling it with some Asiago cheese!

I read the ingredients list, and tomatoes are not listed. How many and what kind is needed?

Hello! The tomatoes are listed in the ingredient list. The type of tomato does not matter but we suggest two large ripe ones of your favorite kind. Hope this helps. :)

I'm catching up on delicious recipes here ( love the great recipes)! for chicken this wk. But have no Asiago cheese, would grated parmesan be a good substitute? If no, what other type of cheese would work? Thanks!

Hello! - Grated Parmesan or Romano cheese would be good substitutes for Asiago cheese in this recipe. Enjoy!

Can u use a fresh brucehtta as a sauce for the chicken?

Hi there! Yes, the Test Kitchen says that fresh bruschetta will work great. :) Enjoy!

About Step #3 -- Just to clarify -- you spray cooking spray ON the chicken after it's on the baking sheet?? I've never heard of that before.

Hi there! Yes, lightly spray the chicken so that it will help brown and crisp up the topping. Enjoy!
