Perfect Chicken Parmesan
Chicken Parmesan is one of my favorite meals and this is one of the best recipes I have ever tried. I hope you like it as much as I did!
8 large chicken breasts
1/2 cup melted butter (8 TBS)
2 cloves cloves garlic
2 cups Italian bread crumbs
1 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
Your favorite pasta sauce
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
Preheat your oven to 350. Trim all fat from chicken breasts. In a small bowl combine melted butter, garlic, and egg. Set aside.
In a medium bowl combine bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, onion powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper until mixed thoroughly.
Dip your chicken breast first in your butter mixture, then in the bread crumb mixture. Make sure you coat both sides evenly. Place in a non-greased 9x13 pan. Repeat until all chicken is coated.
Bake uncovered for 45 minutes. Then top each breast with a little pasta sauce and some mozzarella cheese. Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve over your favorite pasta. Goes along beautifully with THIS homemade roll recipe. Enjoy!
