This easy Parmesan Crusted Chicken recipe is coated in parmesan cheese and baked until the crust is crispy and the chicken is nice and juicy. The perfect weeknight meal for the family!
Who else is tired of the same old chicken breast recipes? I often struggle with coming up with new ways to prepare chicken because we eat A LOT of it in our house. I love this Parmesan Crusted Chicken recipe because it only calls for just a few ingredients which of course is the perfect weeknight meal.
- Grate fresh parmesan cheese yourself because pre shredded cheese is usually coated in starch will prevent the cheese from sticking to the chicken and melting properly.
- Be sure to spray the foil lined sheet tray with non stick spray to prevent the chicken from sticking to the pan.
- To reheat, pleace on a foil lined sheet tray sprayed with non-stick spray and bake for about 7ish minutes.
