This recipe will be going on my table tonight. It doesn't require any special skills or spaghetti sauce, it's delightful all on it's own. I like to typically serve it with mashed potatoes and a steamed veggie. This evening, I will be making twice baked potatoes and whole steamed green beans to compliment the main dish. Dessert will be peanut butter sheet cake with ice cream. YUM!
Crunchy Parmesan Chicken
3-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3/4 c. grated parmesan cheese (the cheap/powdery stuff is fine)
1/4 c. seasoned bread crumbs
1 small can of French's fried onions (3 oz.), crushed
1 t. paprika
1/2 t. salt
1 T. milk
1/4 c. melted butter or margarine
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients in a shallow pan. Mix egg and milk in another dish. Dip chicken in egg/milk mixture, then in dry ingredients. Place into a baking dish (a square pan or 9x13 is fine, just don't crowd the chicken). When you are done dipping, sprinkle remaining dry ingredients over the chicken. Waste not, want not! Drizzle breast evenly with melted butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes.
