There is no way you can eat this parmesan chicken silently – it’s that good! The combination of parmesan with other ingredients make this so extra special that you may not want to make chicken any other way again. These tender baked chicken breasts are first rolled in a mixture that flavors them perfectly, then are baked to a delicate brown.
French fried onion rings are a starring part of this recipe. These delicious onions can be found in the grocery aisle next to the canned vegetables. They make a perfect accompaniment to many dishes and a few of them flavor this baked chicken to perfection.
Don’t skip the paprika – it deliciously seasons the mixture with a lovely taste. The Hungarian-style sweet paprika is especially nice.
Baked Parmesan Chicken Recipe
Ingredients for Baked Parmesan Chicken:
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 can (2.8) ounces French fried onions
- ¾ cup parmesan cheese, shredded
- ¼ cup bread crumbs
- 1 tsp. paprika
- ½ tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. pepper
- 3 large chicken breasts, cut in half
- ¼ cup butter, melted
Directions for making Baked Parmesan Chicken:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease the bottom and sides of a 9 x 13 baking dish.
In a shallow bowl, stir together the egg and milk.
In the container of a food processor, combine the French fried onions, the parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, paprika, salt, and pepper. Pulse the food processor 3 or 4 times or until the ingredients are mixed and grated to a powder. (If you don’t have a food processor, chop the French fried onions in a blender or by using a pastry cutter. Then stir the crushed onions into the rest of the coating ingredients.)
Cut the chicken breasts in half. Dip each first in the egg mixture, then roll it in the coating mixture so it is evenly coated. Place each in a single layer spaced an inch or so apart in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Press any leftover coating mixture into the tops of each chicken breast half. Drizzle evenly with the melted butter.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 – 50 minutes or until done.
