Chicken Parmesan (our favorite version) recipe Share this recipe on Facebook
This is our favorite version for this popular Italian Chicken Parmesan recipe. Chicken pieces are dipped into garlic flavoured butter, coated in breadcrumbs and herbs and then baked in the oven. Unlike the other recipes, this version does not use tomato sauce, but it is equally delicious.
Preparation time: 15 minutes, Cooking time: 15 minutes, Serves: 4
1 clove garlic, minced
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup dried bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried rosemary (or 1 tsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped)
1/2 tsp dried thyme (or 1 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped)
1/2 tsp dried oregano (or 1 tsp fresh oregano, finely chopped)
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
4 chicken breasts, skinned and boned, cut into 2 inch wide pieces
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (225 degrees Celsius).
In a bowl, combine the minced garlic with the melted butter; stir well until the garlic and butter blend well. In another bowl mix together the bread crumbs, thyme, oregano, rosemary, basil, parmesan, parsley, salt and pepper.
Dip the chicken pieces first into the into garlic butter and then into the bread crumb and herbs mixture, making sure to coat each piece on both sides.
Place the coated chicken pieces on to a baking dish, large enough to hold all chicken pieces on a single layer, with a little room between each piece. Drizzle the chicken with the remaining garlic butter and bake, uncovered for 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
